Ezekiel 1


1  Now it came to pass1961 in the thirtieth7970 year,8141 in the fourth7243 month, in the fifth2568 day of the month,2320 as I589 was among8432 the captives1473 by5921 the river5104 of Chebar,3529 that the heavens8064 were opened,6605 and I saw7200 visions4759 of God.430

2  In the fifth2568 day of the month,2320 which1931 was the fifth2549 year8141 of king4428 Jehoiachin's3112 captivity,1546

3  The word1697 of the LORD3068 came expressly1961 1961 unto413 Ezekiel3168 the priest,3548 the son1121 of Buzi,941 in the land776 of the Chaldeans3778 by5921 the river5104 Chebar;3529 and the hand3027 of the LORD3068 was1961 there8033 upon5921 him.

4  And I looked,7200 and, behold,2009 a whirlwind7307 5591 came935 out of4480 the north,6828 a great1419 cloud,6051 and a fire784 enfolding itself,3947 and a brightness5051 was about5439 it, and out of the midst4480 8432 thereof as the color5869 of amber,2830 out of the midst4480 8432 of the fire.784

5  Also out of the midst4480 8432 thereof came the likeness1823 of four702 living creatures.2416 And this2088 was their appearance;4758 they2007 had the likeness1823 of a man.120

6  And every one259 had four702 faces,6440 and every one259 had four702 wings.3671

7  And their feet7272 were straight3477 feet;7272 and the sole3709 of their feet7272 was like the sole3709 of a calf's5695 foot:7272 and they sparkled5340 like the color5869 of burnished7044 brass.5178

8  And they had the hands3027 of a man120 under4480 8478 their wings3671 on5921 their four702 sides;7253 and they four702 had their faces6440 and their wings.3671

9  Their wings3671 were joined2266 one802 to413 another;269 they turned5437 not3808 when they went;1980 they went1980 every one376 straight5676 forward.6440

10  As for the likeness1823 of their faces,6440 they four702 had the face6440 of a man,120 and the face6440 of a lion,738 on413 the right side:3225 and they four702 had the face6440 of an ox7794 on the left side;4480 8040 they four702 also had the face6440 of an eagle.5404

11  Thus were their faces:6440 and their wings3671 were stretched6504 upward;4480 4605 two8147 wings of every one376 were joined2266 one to another,376 and two8147 covered3680 853 their bodies.1472

12  And they went1980 every one376 straight5676 forward:6440 whither834 8033 the spirit7307 was1961 to go,1980 they went;1980 and they turned5437 not3808 when they went.1980

13  As for the likeness1823 of the living creatures,2416 their appearance4758 was like burning1197 coals1513 of fire,784 and like the appearance4758 of lamps:3940 it1931 went up and down1980 among996 the living creatures;2416 and the fire784 was bright,5051 and out of4480 the fire784 went forth3318 lightning.1300

14  And the living creatures2416 ran7519 and returned7725 as the appearance4758 of a flash of lightning.965

15  Now as I beheld7200 the living creatures,2416 behold2009 one259 wheel212 upon the earth776 by681 the living creatures,2416 with his four702 faces.6440

16  The appearance4758 of the wheels212 and their work4639 was like unto the color5869 of a beryl:8658 and they four702 had one259 likeness:1823 and their appearance4758 and their work4639 was as834 it were1961 a wheel212 in the middle8432 of a wheel.212

17  When they went,1980 they went1980 upon5921 their four702 sides:7253 and they turned5437 not3808 when they went.1980

18  As for their rings,1354 they were so high1363 that they were dreadful;3374 and their rings1354 were full4392 of eyes5869 round about5439 them four.702

19  And when the living creatures2416 went,1980 the wheels212 went1980 by681 them: and when the living creatures2416 were lifted up5375 from4480 5921 the earth,776 the wheels212 were lifted up.5375

20  Whithersoever5921 834 8033 the spirit7307 was1961 to go,1980 they went,1980 thither8033 was their spirit7307 to go;1980 and the wheels212 were lifted up5375 over against5980 them: for3588 the spirit7307 of the living creature2416 was in the wheels.212

21  When those went,1980 these went;1980 and when those stood,5975 these stood;5975 and when those were lifted up5375 from4480 5921 the earth,776 the wheels212 were lifted up5375 over against5980 them: for3588 the spirit7307 of the living creature2416 was in the wheels.212

22  And the likeness1823 of the firmament7549 upon5921 the heads7218 of the living creature2416 was as the color5869 of the terrible3372 crystal,7140 stretched forth5186 over5921 their heads7218 above.4480 4605

23  And under8478 the firmament7549 were their wings3671 straight,3477 the one802 toward413 the other:269 every one376 had two,8147 which covered3680 on this side,2007 and every one376 had two,8147 which covered3680 on that side,2007 853 their bodies.1472

24  And when they went,1980 I heard8085 853 the noise6963 of their wings,3671 like the noise6963 of great7227 waters,4325 as the voice6963 of the Almighty,7706 the voice6963 of speech,1999 as the noise6963 of a host:4264 when they stood,5975 they let down7503 their wings.3671

25  And there was1961 a voice6963 from4480 5921 the firmament7549 that834 was over5921 their heads,7218 when they stood,5975 and had let down7503 their wings.3671

26  And above4480 4605 the firmament7549 that834 was over5921 their heads7218 was the likeness1823 of a throne,3678 as the appearance4758 of a sapphire5601 stone:68 and upon5921 the likeness1823 of the throne3678 was the likeness1823 as the appearance4758 of a man120 above4480 4605 upon5921 it.

27  And I saw7200 as the color5869 of amber,2830 as the appearance4758 of fire784 round about5439 within1004 it, from the appearance4480 4758 of his loins4975 even upward,4605 and from the appearance4480 4758 of his loins4975 even downward,4295 I saw7200 as it were the appearance4758 of fire,784 and it had brightness5051 round about.5439

28  As the appearance4758 of the bow7198 that834 is1961 in the cloud6051 in the day3117 of rain,1653 so3651 was the appearance4758 of the brightness5051 round about.5439 This1931 was the appearance4758 of the likeness1823 of the glory3519 of the LORD.3068 And when I saw7200 it, I fell5307 upon5921 my face,6440 and I heard8085 a voice6963 of one that spoke.1696


Ezekiel 2


1  And he said559 unto413 me, Son1121 of man,120 stand5975 upon5921 thy feet,7272 and I will speak1696 unto thee.

2  And the spirit7307 entered935 into me when834 he spoke1696 unto413 me, and set5975 me upon5921 my feet,7272 that I heard8085 853 him that spoke1696 unto413 me.

3  And he said559 unto413 me, Son1121 of man,120 I589 send7971 thee853 to413 the children1121 of Israel,3478 to413 a rebellious4775 nation1471 that834 hath rebelled4775 against me: they1992 and their fathers1 have transgressed6586 against me, even unto5704 this2088 very6106 day.3117

4  For they are impudent7186 6440 children1121 and stiffhearted.2389 3820 I589 do send7971 thee unto413 them; and thou shalt say559 unto413 them, Thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD.3069

5  And they,1992 whether518 they will hear,8085 or whether518 they will forbear,2308 (for3588 they1992 are a rebellious4805 house,)1004 yet shall know3045 that3588 there hath been1961 a prophet5030 among8432 them.

6  And thou,859 son1121 of man,120 be not afraid3372 408 of4480 them, neither408 be afraid3372 of their words,4480 1697 though3588 briers5621 and thorns5544 be with854 thee, and thou859 dost dwell3427 among413 scorpions:6137 be not afraid3372 408 of their words,4480 1697 nor408 be dismayed2865 at their looks,4480 6440 though3588 they1992 be a rebellious4805 house.1004

7  And thou shalt speak1696 853 my words1697 unto413 them, whether518 they will hear,8085 or whether518 they will forbear:2308 for3588 they1992 are most rebellious.4805

8  But thou,859 son1121 of man,120 hear8085 853 what834 I589 say1696 unto413 thee; Be1961 not408 thou rebellious4805 like that rebellious4805 house:1004 open6475 thy mouth,6310 and eat398 853 that834 I589 give5414 413 thee.

9  And when I looked,7200 behold,2009 a hand3027 was sent7971 unto413 me; and, lo,2009 a roll4039 of a book5612 was therein;

10  And he spread6566 it before6440 me; and it1931 was written3789 within6440 and without:268 and there was written3789 therein413 lamentations,7015 and mourning,1899 and woe.1958


Ezekiel 3


1  Moreover he said559 unto413 me, Son1121 of man,120 eat398 853 that834 thou findest;4672 eat398 this2063 853 roll,4039 and go1980 speak1696 unto413 the house1004 of Israel.3478

2  So I opened6605 853 my mouth,6310 and he caused me to eat398 853 that2063 roll.4039

3  And he said559 unto413 me, Son1121 of man,120 cause thy belly990 to eat,398 and fill4390 thy bowels4578 with854 this2063 roll4039 that834 I589 give5414 413 thee. Then did I eat398 it; and it was1961 in my mouth6310 as honey1706 for sweetness.4966

4  And he said559 unto413 me, Son1121 of man,120 go,1980 get935 thee unto413 the house1004 of Israel,3478 and speak1696 with my words1697 unto413 them.

5  For3588 thou859 art not3808 sent7971 to413 a people5971 of a strange6012 speech8193 and of a hard3515 language,3956 but to413 the house1004 of Israel;3478

6  Not3808 to413 many7227 people5971 of a strange6012 speech8193 and of a hard3515 language,3956 whose834 words1697 thou canst not3808 understand.8085 Surely,518 3808 had I sent7971 thee to413 them, they1992 would have hearkened8085 unto413 thee.

7  But the house1004 of Israel3478 will14 not3808 hearken8085 unto413 thee; for3588 they will14 not369 hearken8085 unto413 me: for3588 all3605 the house1004 of Israel3478 are impudent2389 4696 and hardhearted.7186 3820

8  Behold,2009 I have made5414 853 thy face6440 strong2389 against5980 their faces,6440 and853 thy forehead4696 strong2389 against5980 their foreheads.4696

9  As an adamant8068 harder2389 than flint4480 6864 have I made5414 thy forehead:4696 fear3372 them not,3808 neither3808 be dismayed2865 at their looks,4480 6440 though3588 they1992 be a rebellious4805 house.1004

10  Moreover he said559 unto413 me, Son1121 of man,120 853 all3605 my words1697 that834 I shall speak1696 unto413 thee receive3947 in thine heart,3824 and hear8085 with thine ears.241

11  And go,1980 get935 thee to413 them of the captivity,1473 unto413 the children1121 of thy people,5971 and speak1696 unto413 them, and tell559 413 them, Thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 whether518 they will hear,8085 or whether518 they will forbear.2308

12  Then the spirit7307 took me up,5375 and I heard8085 behind310 me a voice6963 of a great1419 rushing,7494 saying, Blessed1288 be the glory3519 of the LORD3068 from his place.4480 4725

13  I heard also the noise6963 of the wings3671 of the living creatures2416 that touched5401 one802 another,269 and the noise6963 of the wheels212 over against5980 them, and a noise6963 of a great1419 rushing.7494

14  So the spirit7307 lifted me up,5375 and took me away,3947 and I went1980 in bitterness,4751 in the heat2534 of my spirit;7307 but the hand3027 of the LORD3068 was strong2389 upon5921 me.

15  Then I came935 to413 them of the captivity1473 at Tel-abib,8512 that dwelt3427 by413 the river5104 of Chebar,3529 and I sat3427 where8033 they1992 sat,3427 and remained3427 there8033 astonished8074 among8432 them seven7651 days.3117

16  And it came to pass1961 at the end4480 7097 of seven7651 days,3117 that the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 unto413 me, saying,559

17  Son1121 of man,120 I have made5414 thee a watchman6822 unto the house1004 of Israel:3478 therefore hear8085 the word1697 at my mouth,4480 6310 and give them warning2094 853 from4480 me.

18  When I say559 unto the wicked,7563 Thou shalt surely die;4191 4191 and thou givest him not warning,2094 3808 nor3808 speakest1696 to warn2094 the wicked7563 from his wicked7563 way,4480 1870 to save his life;2421 the same1931 wicked7563 man shall die4191 in his iniquity;5771 but his blood1818 will I require1245 at thine hand.4480 3027

19  Yet if3588 thou859 warn2094 the wicked,7563 and he turn7725 not3808 from his wickedness,4480 7562 nor from his wicked7563 way,4480 1870 he1931 shall die4191 in his iniquity;5771 but thou859 hast delivered5337 853 thy soul.5315

20  Again, When a righteous6662 man doth turn7725 from his righteousness,4480 6664 and commit6213 iniquity,5766 and I lay5414 a stumblingblock4383 before6440 him, he1931 shall die:4191 because3588 thou hast not3808 given him warning,2094 he shall die4191 in his sin,2403 and his righteousness6666 which834 he hath done6213 shall not3808 be remembered;2142 but his blood1818 will I require1245 at thine hand.4480 3027

21  Nevertheless if3588 thou859 warn2094 the righteous6662 man, that the righteous6662 sin2398 not,1115 and he1931 doth not3808 sin,2398 he shall surely live,2421 2421 because3588 he is warned;2094 also thou859 hast delivered5337 853 thy soul.5315

22  And the hand3027 of the LORD3068 was1961 there8033 upon5921 me; and he said559 unto413 me, Arise,6965 go forth3318 into413 the plain,1237 and I will there8033 talk1696 with854 thee.

23  Then I arose,6965 and went forth3318 into413 the plain:1237 and, behold,2009 the glory3519 of the LORD3068 stood5975 there,8033 as the glory3519 which834 I saw7200 by5921 the river5104 of Chebar:3529 and I fell5307 on5921 my face.6440

24  Then the spirit7307 entered935 into me, and set5975 me upon5921 my feet,7272 and spoke1696 with854 me, and said559 unto413 me, Go,935 shut thyself5462 within8432 thine house.1004

25  But thou,859 O son1121 of man,120 behold,2009 they shall put5414 bands5688 upon5921 thee, and shall bind631 thee with them, and thou shalt not3808 go out3318 among8432 them:

26  And I will make thy tongue3956 cleave1692 to413 the roof of thy mouth,2441 that thou shalt be dumb,481 and shalt not3808 be1961 to them a reprover:376 3198 for3588 they1992 are a rebellious4805 house.1004

27  But when I speak1696 with854 thee, I will open6605 853 thy mouth,6310 and thou shalt say559 unto413 them, Thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 He that heareth,8085 let him hear;8085 and he that forbeareth,2310 let him forbear:2308 for3588 they1992 are a rebellious4805 house.1004


Ezekiel 4


1  Thou859 also, son1121 of man,120 take3947 thee a tile,3843 and lay5414 it before6440 thee, and portray2710 upon5921 it the city,5892 even 853 Jerusalem:3389

2  And lay5414 siege4692 against5921 it, and build1129 a fort1785 against5921 it, and cast8210 a mount5550 against5921 it; set5414 the camp4264 also against5921 it, and set7760 battering rams3733 against5921 it round about.5439

3  Moreover take3947 thou859 unto thee an iron1270 pan,4227 and set5414 it for a wall7023 of iron1270 between996 thee and the city:5892 and set3559 853 thy face6440 against413 it, and it shall be1961 besieged,4692 and thou shalt lay siege6696 against5921 it. This1931 shall be a sign226 to the house1004 of Israel.3478

4  Lie7901 thou859 also upon5921 thy left8042 side,6654 and lay7760 853 the iniquity5771 of the house1004 of Israel3478 upon5921 it: according to the number4557 of the days3117 that834 thou shalt lie7901 upon5921 it thou shalt bear5375 853 their iniquity.5771

5  For I589 have laid5414 upon thee 853 the years8141 of their iniquity,5771 according to the number4557 of the days,3117 three7969 hundred3967 and ninety8673 days:3117 so shalt thou bear5375 the iniquity5771 of the house1004 of Israel.3478

6  And when thou hast accomplished3615 853 them,428 lie7901 again8145 on5921 thy right3233 side,6654 and thou shalt bear5375 853 the iniquity5771 of the house1004 of Judah3063 forty705 days:3117 I have appointed5414 thee each day for a year.3117 8141 3117 8141

7  Therefore thou shalt set3559 thy face6440 toward413 the siege4692 of Jerusalem,3389 and thine arm2220 shall be uncovered,2834 and thou shalt prophesy5012 against5921 it.

8  And, behold,2009 I will lay5414 bands5688 upon5921 thee, and thou shalt not3808 turn2015 thee from one side4480 6654 to413 another,6654 till5704 thou hast ended3615 the days3117 of thy siege.4692

9  Take3947 thou859 also unto thee wheat,2406 and barley,8184 and beans,6321 and lentils,5742 and millet,1764 and fitches,3698 and put5414 them in one259 vessel,3627 and make6213 thee bread3899 thereof, according to the number4557 of the days3117 that834 thou859 shalt lie7901 upon5921 thy side,6654 three7969 hundred3967 and ninety8673 days3117 shalt thou eat398 thereof.

10  And thy meat3978 which834 thou shalt eat398 shall be by weight,4946 twenty6242 shekels8255 a day:3117 from time4480 6256 to5704 time6256 shalt thou eat398 it.

11  Thou shalt drink8354 also water4325 by measure,4884 the sixth part8345 of a hin:1969 from time4480 6256 to5704 time6256 shalt thou drink.8354

12  And thou shalt eat398 it as barley8184 cakes,5692 and thou shalt bake5746 it1931 with dung1561 that cometh out6627 of man,120 in their sight.5869

13  And the LORD3068 said,559 Even thus3602 shall the children1121 of Israel3478 eat398 their defiled2931 853 bread3899 among the Gentiles,1471 whither834 8033 I will drive5080 them.

14  Then said559 I, Ah162 Lord136 GOD!3069 behold,2009 my soul5315 hath not3808 been polluted:2930 for from my youth4480 5271 up even till5704 now6258 have I not3808 eaten398 of that which dieth of itself,5038 or is torn in pieces;2966 neither3808 came935 there abominable6292 flesh1320 into my mouth.6310

15  Then he said559 unto413 me, Lo,7200 I have given5414 thee 853 cow's1241 dung6832 for8478 man's120 dung,1561 and thou shalt prepare6213 853 thy bread3899 therewith.5921

16  Moreover he said559 unto413 me, Son1121 of man,120 behold,2009 I will break7665 the staff4294 of bread3899 in Jerusalem:3389 and they shall eat398 bread3899 by weight,4948 and with care;1674 and they shall drink8354 water4325 by measure,4884 and with astonishment:8078

17  That4616 they may want2637 bread3899 and water,4325 and be astonished8074 one376 with another,251 and consume away4743 for their iniquity.5771

1  And thou,859 son1121 of man,120 take3947 thee a sharp2299 knife,2719 take3947 thee a barber's1532 razor,8593 and cause it to pass5674 upon5921 thine head7218 and upon5921 thy beard:2206 then take3947 thee balances3976 to weigh,4948 and divide2505 the hair.

2  Thou shalt burn1197 with fire217 a third part7992 in the midst8432 of the city,5892 when the days3117 of the siege4692 are fulfilled:4390 and thou shalt take3947 853 a third part,7992 and smite5221 about5439 it with a knife:2719 and a third part7992 thou shalt scatter2219 in the wind;7307 and I will draw out7324 a sword2719 after310 them.

3  Thou shalt also take3947 thereof4480 8033 a few4592 in number,4557 and bind6696 them in thy skirts.3671

4  Then take3947 of4480 them again,5750 and cast7993 them into413 the midst8432 of the fire,784 and burn8313 them in the fire;784 for thereof4480 shall a fire784 come forth3318 into413 all3605 the house1004 of Israel.3478

5  Thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 This2063 is Jerusalem:3389 I have set7760 it in the midst8432 of the nations1471 and countries776 that are round about5439 her.

6  And she hath changed4784 853 my judgments4941 into wickedness7564 more than4480 the nations,1471 and my statutes2708 more than4480 the countries776 that834 are round about5439 her: for3588 they have refused3988 my judgments4941 and my statutes,2708 they have not3808 walked1980 in them.

7  Therefore3651 thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 Because3282 ye multiplied1995 more than4480 the nations1471 that834 are round about5439 you, and have not3808 walked1980 in my statutes,2708 neither3808 have kept6213 my judgments,4941 neither3808 have done6213 according to the judgments4941 of the nations1471 that834 are round about5439 you;

8  Therefore3651 thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 Behold,2009 I, even1571 I,589 am against5921 thee, and will execute6213 judgments4941 in the midst8432 of thee in the sight5869 of the nations.1471

9  And I will do6213 in thee 853 that which834 I have not3808 done,6213 and whereunto834 I will not3808 do6213 any more5750 the like,3644 because of3282 all3605 thine abominations.8441

10  Therefore3651 the fathers1 shall eat398 the sons1121 in the midst8432 of thee, and the sons1121 shall eat398 their fathers;1 and I will execute6213 judgments8201 in thee, and 853 the whole3605 remnant7611 of thee will I scatter2219 into all3605 the winds.7307

11  Wherefore,3651 as I589 live,2416 saith5002 the Lord136 GOD;3069 Surely,518 3808 because3282 thou hast defiled2930 853 my sanctuary4720 with all3605 thy detestable things,8251 and with all3605 thine abominations,8441 therefore1571 will I589 also diminish1639 thee; neither3808 shall mine eye5869 spare,2347 neither3808 will I589 have any pity.2550

12  A third part7992 of thee shall die4191 with the pestilence,1698 and with famine7458 shall they be consumed3615 in the midst8432 of thee: and a third part7992 shall fall5307 by the sword2719 round about5439 thee; and I will scatter2219 a third part7992 into all3605 the winds,7307 and I will draw out7324 a sword2719 after310 them.

13  Thus shall mine anger639 be accomplished,3615 and I will cause my fury2534 to rest5117 upon them, and I will be comforted:5162 and they shall know3045 that3588 I589 the LORD3068 have spoken1696 it in my zeal,7068 when I have accomplished3615 my fury2534 in them.

14  Moreover I will make5414 thee waste,2723 and a reproach2781 among the nations1471 that834 are round about5439 thee, in the sight5869 of all3605 that pass by.5674

15  So it shall be1961 a reproach2781 and a taunt,1422 an instruction4148 and an astonishment4923 unto the nations1471 that834 are round about5439 thee, when I shall execute6213 judgments8201 in thee in anger639 and in fury2534 and in furious2534 rebukes.8433 I589 the LORD3068 have spoken1696 it.

16  When I shall send7971 upon them the 853 evil7451 arrows2671 of famine,7458 which834 shall be1961 for their destruction,4889 and which834 I will send7971 853 to destroy7843 you: and I will increase3254 the famine7458 upon5921 you, and will break7665 your staff4294 of bread:3899

17  So will I send7971 upon5921 you famine7458 and evil7451 beasts,2416 and they shall bereave7921 thee; and pestilence1698 and blood1818 shall pass5674 through thee; and I will bring935 the sword2719 upon5921 thee. I589 the LORD3068 have spoken1696 it.


Ezekiel 6


1  And the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 unto413 me, saying,559

2  Son1121 of man,120 set7760 thy face6440 toward413 the mountains2022 of Israel,3478 and prophesy5012 against413 them,

3  And say,559 Ye mountains2022 of Israel,3478 hear8085 the word1697 of the Lord136 GOD;3069 Thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD3069 to the mountains,2022 and to the hills,1389 to the rivers,650 and to the valleys;1516 Behold,2009 I, even I,589 will bring935 a sword2719 upon5921 you, and I will destroy6 your high places.1116

4  And your altars4196 shall be desolate,8074 and your images2553 shall be broken:7665 and I will cast down5307 your slain2491 men before6440 your idols.1544

5  And I will lay5414 853 the dead carcasses6297 of the children1121 of Israel3478 before6440 their idols;1544 and I will scatter2219 853 your bones6106 round about5439 your altars.4196

6  In all3605 your dwelling places4186 the cities5892 shall be laid waste,2717 and the high places1116 shall be desolate;3456 that4616 your altars4196 may be laid waste2717 and made desolate,816 and your idols1544 may be broken7665 and cease,7673 and your images2553 may be cut down,1438 and your works4639 may be abolished.4229

7  And the slain2491 shall fall5307 in the midst8432 of you, and ye shall know3045 that3588 I589 am the LORD.3068

8  Yet will I leave a remnant,3498 that ye may have1961 some that shall escape6412 the sword2719 among the nations,1471 when ye shall be scattered2219 through the countries.776

9  And they that escape6412 of you shall remember2142 me among the nations1471 whither834 8033 they shall be carried captives,7617 because834 I am broken7665 with854 their whorish2181 heart,3820 which834 hath departed5493 from4480 5921 me, and with854 their eyes,5869 which go a whoring2181 after310 their idols:1544 and they shall loathe6962 themselves6440 for413 the evils7451 which834 they have committed6213 in all3605 their abominations.8441

10  And they shall know3045 that3588 I589 am the LORD,3068 and that I have not3808 said1696 in vain413 2600 that I would do6213 this2063 evil7451 unto them.

11  Thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 Smite5221 with thine hand,3709 and stamp7554 with thy foot,7272 and say,559 Alas253 for413 all3605 the evil7451 abominations8441 of the house1004 of Israel!3478 for834 they shall fall5307 by the sword,2719 by the famine,7458 and by the pestilence.1698

12  He that is far off7350 shall die4191 of the pestilence;1698 and he that is near7138 shall fall5307 by the sword;2719 and he that remaineth7604 and is besieged5341 shall die4191 by the famine:7458 thus will I accomplish3615 my fury2534 upon them.

13  Then shall ye know3045 that3588 I589 am the LORD,3068 when their slain2491 men shall be1961 among8432 their idols1544 round about5439 their altars,4196 upon413 every3605 high7311 hill,1389 in all3605 the tops7218 of the mountains,2022 and under8478 every3605 green7488 tree,6086 and under8478 every3605 thick5687 oak,424 the place4725 where834 8033 they did offer5414 sweet5207 savor7381 to all3605 their idols.1544

14  So will I stretch out5186 853 my hand3027 upon5921 them, and make5414 853 the land776 desolate,8077 yea, more desolate4923 than the wilderness4480 4057 toward Diblath,1689 in all3605 their habitations:4186 and they shall know3045 that3588 I589 am the LORD.3068


Ezekiel 7


1  Moreover the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 unto413 me, saying,559

2  Also, thou859 son1121 of man,120 thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD3069 unto the land127 of Israel;3478 An end,7093 the end7093 is come935 upon5921 the four702 corners3671 of the land.776

3  Now6258 is the end7093 come upon5921 thee, and I will send7971 mine anger639 upon thee, and will judge8199 thee according to thy ways,1870 and will recompense5414 upon5921 thee 853 all3605 thine abominations.8441

4  And mine eye5869 shall not3808 spare2347 5921 thee, neither3808 will I have pity:2550 but3588 I will recompense5414 thy ways1870 upon5921 thee, and thine abominations8441 shall be1961 in the midst8432 of thee: and ye shall know3045 that3588 I589 am the LORD.3068

5  Thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 An evil,7451 an only259 evil,7451 behold,2009 is come.935

6  An end7093 is come,935 the end7093 is come:935 it watcheth6974 for413 thee; behold,2009 it is come.935

7  The morning6843 is come935 unto413 thee, O thou that dwellest3427 in the land:776 the time6256 is come,935 the day3117 of trouble4103 is near,7138 and not3808 the sounding again1906 of the mountains.2022

8  Now6258 will I shortly4480 7138 pour out8210 my fury2534 upon5921 thee, and accomplish3615 mine anger639 upon thee: and I will judge8199 thee according to thy ways,1870 and will recompense5414 5921 thee for 853 all3605 thine abominations.8441

9  And mine eye5869 shall not3808 spare,2347 neither3808 will I have pity:2550 I will recompense5414 5921 thee according to thy ways1870 and thine abominations8441 that are1961 in the midst8432 of thee; and ye shall know3045 that3588 I589 am the LORD3068 that smiteth.5221

10  Behold2009 the day,3117 behold,2009 it is come:935 the morning6843 is gone forth;3318 the rod4294 hath blossomed,6692 pride2087 hath budded.6524

11  Violence2555 is risen up6965 into a rod4294 of wickedness:7562 none3808 of4480 them shall remain, nor3808 of their multitude,4480 1995 nor3808 of any of theirs:4480 1991 neither3808 shall there be wailing5089 for them.

12  The time6256 is come,935 the day3117 draweth near:5060 let not408 the buyer7069 rejoice,8055 nor408 the seller4376 mourn:56 for3588 wrath2740 is upon413 all3605 the multitude1995 thereof.

13  For3588 the seller4376 shall not3808 return7725 to413 that which is sold,4465 although they were yet5750 alive:2416 2416 for3588 the vision2377 is touching413 the whole3605 multitude1995 thereof, which shall not3808 return;7725 neither3808 shall any376 strengthen himself2388 in the iniquity5771 of his life.2416

14  They have blown8628 the trumpet,8619 even to make all ready;3559 3605 but none369 goeth1980 to the battle:4421 for3588 my wrath2740 is upon413 all3605 the multitude1995 thereof.

15  The sword2719 is without,2351 and the pestilence1698 and the famine7458 within:4480 1004 he that834 is in the field7704 shall die4191 with the sword;2719 and he that834 is in the city,5892 famine7458 and pestilence1698 shall devour398 him.

16  But they that escape6403 of them shall escape,6412 and shall be1961 on413 the mountains2022 like doves3123 of the valleys,1516 all3605 of them mourning,1993 every one376 for his iniquity.5771

17  All3605 hands3027 shall be feeble,7503 and all3605 knees1290 shall be weak1980 as water.4325

18  They shall also gird2296 themselves with sackcloth,8242 and horror6427 shall cover3680 them; and shame955 shall be upon413 all3605 faces,6440 and baldness7144 upon all3605 their heads.7218

19  They shall cast7993 their silver3701 in the streets,2351 and their gold2091 shall be1961 removed:5079 their silver3701 and their gold2091 shall not3808 be able3201 to deliver5337 them in the day3117 of the wrath5678 of the LORD:3068 they shall not3808 satisfy7646 their souls,5315 neither3808 fill4390 their bowels:4578 because3588 it is1961 the stumblingblock4383 of their iniquity.5771

20  As for the beauty6643 of his ornament,5716 he set7760 it in majesty:1347 but they made6213 the images6754 of their abominations8441 and of their detestable things8251 therein: therefore5921 3651 have I set5414 it far5079 from them.

21  And I will give5414 it into the hands3027 of the strangers2114 for a prey,957 and to the wicked7563 of the earth776 for a spoil;7998 and they shall pollute2490 it.

22  My face6440 will I turn5437 also from4480 them, and they shall pollute2490 853 my secret6845 place: for the robbers6530 shall enter935 into it, and defile2490 it.

23  Make6213 a chain:7569 for3588 the land776 is full4390 of bloody1818 crimes,4941 and the city5892 is full4390 of violence.2555

24  Wherefore I will bring935 the worst7451 of the heathen,1471 and they shall possess3423 853 their houses:1004 I will also make the pomp1347 of the strong5794 to cease;7673 and their holy places4720 shall be defiled.2490

25  Destruction7089 cometh;935 and they shall seek1245 peace,7965 and there shall be none.369

26  Mischief1943 shall come935 upon5921 mischief,1943 and rumor8052 shall be1961 upon413 rumor;8052 then shall they seek1245 a vision2377 of the prophet;4480 5030 but the law8451 shall perish6 from the priest,4480 3548 and counsel6098 from the ancients.4480 2205

27  The king4428 shall mourn,56 and the prince5387 shall be clothed3847 with desolation,8077 and the hands3027 of the people5971 of the land776 shall be troubled:926 I will do6213 unto them after their way,4480 1870 and according to their deserts4941 will I judge8199 them; and they shall know3045 that3588 I589 am the LORD.3068


Ezekiel 8


1  And it came to pass1961 in the sixth8345 year,8141 in the sixth8345 month, in the fifth2568 day of the month,2320 as I589 sat3427 in mine house,1004 and the elders2205 of Judah3063 sat3427 before6440 me, that the hand3027 of the Lord136 GOD3069 fell5307 there8033 upon5921 me.

2  Then I beheld,7200 and lo2009 a likeness1823 as the appearance4758 of fire:784 from the appearance4480 4758 of his loins4975 even downward,4295 fire;784 and from his loins4480 4975 even upward,4605 as the appearance4758 of brightness,2096 as the color5869 of amber.2830

3  And he put forth7971 the form8403 of a hand,3027 and took3947 me by a lock6734 of mine head;7218 and the spirit7307 lifted me up5375 853 between996 the earth776 and the heaven,8064 and brought935 me in the visions4759 of God430 to Jerusalem,3389 to413 the door6607 of the inner6442 gate8179 that looketh6437 toward the north;6828 where834 8033 was the seat4186 of the image5566 of jealousy,7068 which provoketh to jealousy.7065

4  And, behold,2009 the glory3519 of the God430 of Israel3478 was there,8033 according to the vision4758 that834 I saw7200 in the plain.1237

5  Then said559 he unto413 me, Son1121 of man,120 lift up5375 thine eyes5869 now4994 the way1870 toward the north.6828 So I lifted up5375 mine eyes5869 the way1870 toward the north,6828 and behold2009 northward4480 6828 at the gate8179 of the altar4196 this2088 image5566 of jealousy7068 in the entry.872

6  He said559 furthermore unto413 me, Son1121 of man,120 seest7200 thou859 what4100 they1992 do?6213 even the great1419 abominations8441 that834 the house1004 of Israel3478 committeth6213 here,6311 that I should go far off7368 from4480 5921 my sanctuary?4720 but turn thee yet again,7725 5750 and thou shalt see7200 greater1419 abominations.8441

7  And he brought935 me to413 the door6607 of the court;2691 and when I looked,7200 behold2009 a259 hole2356 in the wall.7023

8  Then said559 he unto413 me, Son1121 of man,120 dig2864 now4994 in the wall:7023 and when I had digged2864 in the wall,7023 behold2009 a259 door.6607

9  And he said559 unto413 me, Go in,935 and behold7200 853 the wicked7451 abominations8441 that834 they1992 do6213 here.6311

10  So I went in935 and saw;7200 and behold2009 every3605 form8403 of creeping things,7431 and abominable8263 beasts,929 and all3605 the idols1544 of the house1004 of Israel,3478 portrayed2707 upon5921 the wall7023 round about.5439

11  And there stood5975 before6440 them seventy7657 men376 of the ancients4480 2205 of the house1004 of Israel,3478 and in the midst8432 of them stood5975 Jaazaniah2970 the son1121 of Shaphan,8227 with every man376 his censer4730 in his hand;3027 and a thick6282 cloud6051 of incense7004 went up.5927

12  Then said559 he unto413 me, Son1121 of man,120 hast thou seen7200 what834 the ancients2205 of the house1004 of Israel3478 do6213 in the dark,2822 every man376 in the chambers2315 of his imagery?4906 for3588 they say,559 The LORD3068 seeth7200 us not;369 the LORD3068 hath forsaken5800 853 the earth.776

13  He said559 also unto413 me, Turn thee yet again,7725 5750 and thou shalt see7200 greater1419 abominations8441 that834 they1992 do.6213

14  Then he brought935 me to413 the door6607 of the gate8179 of the LORD's3068 house1004 which834 was toward413 the north;6828 and, behold,2009 there8033 sat3427 women802 weeping1058 for854 Tammuz.8542

15  Then said559 he unto413 me, Hast thou seen7200 this, O son1121 of man?120 turn thee yet again,7725 5750 and thou shalt see7200 greater1419 abominations8441 than these.4480 428

16  And he brought935 me into413 the inner6442 court2691 of the LORD's3068 house,1004 and, behold,2009 at the door6607 of the temple1964 of the LORD,3068 between996 the porch197 and the altar,4196 were about five2568 and twenty6242 men,376 with their backs268 toward413 the temple1964 of the LORD,3068 and their faces6440 toward the east;6924 and they1992 worshiped7812 the sun8121 toward the east.6924

17  Then he said559 unto413 me, Hast thou seen7200 this, O son1121 of man?120 Is it a light thing7043 to the house1004 of Judah3063 that they commit4480 6213 853 the abominations8441 which834 they commit6213 here?6311 for3588 they have filled4390 853 the land776 with violence,2555 and have returned7725 to provoke me to anger:3707 and, lo,2009 they put7971 853 the branch2156 to413 their nose.639

18  Therefore will I589 also1571 deal6213 in fury:2534 mine eye5869 shall not3808 spare,2347 neither3808 will I have pity:2550 and though they cry7121 in mine ears241 with a loud1419 voice,6963 yet will I not3808 hear8085 them.


Ezekiel 9


1  He cried7121 also in mine ears241 with a loud1419 voice,6963 saying,559 Cause them that have charge6486 over the city5892 to draw near,7126 even every man376 with his destroying4892 weapon3627 in his hand.3027

2  And, behold,2009 six8337 men376 came935 from the way4480 1870 of the higher5945 gate,8179 which834 lieth6437 toward the north,6828 and every man376 a slaughter4660 weapon3627 in his hand;3027 and one259 man376 among8432 them was clothed3847 with linen,906 with a writer's5608 inkhorn7083 by his side:4975 and they went in,935 and stood5975 beside681 the brazen5178 altar.4196

3  And the glory3519 of the God430 of Israel3478 was gone up5927 from4480 5921 the cherub,3742 whereupon834 5921 he was,1961 to413 the threshold4670 of the house.1004 And he called7121 to413 the man376 clothed3847 with linen,906 which834 had the writer's5608 inkhorn7083 by his side;4975

4  And the LORD3068 said559 unto413 him, Go through5674 the midst8432 of the city,5892 through the midst8432 of Jerusalem,3389 and set8427 a mark8420 upon5921 the foreheads4696 of the men376 that sigh584 and that cry602 for5921 all3605 the abominations8441 that be done6213 in the midst8432 thereof.

5  And to the others428 he said559 in mine hearing,241 Go5674 ye after310 him through the city,5892 and smite:5221 let not408 your eye5869 spare,2347 neither408 have ye pity:2550

6  Slay2026 utterly4889 old2205 and young,970 both maids,1330 and little children,2945 and women:802 but come not near5066 408 5921 any3605 man376 upon5921 whom834 is the mark;8420 and begin2490 at my sanctuary.4480 4720 Then they began2490 at the ancient2205 men376 which834 were before6440 the house.1004

7  And he said559 unto413 them, Defile2930 853 the house,1004 and fill4390 853 the courts2691 with the slain:2491 go ye forth.3318 And they went forth,3318 and slew5221 in the city.5892

8  And it came to pass,1961 while they were slaying5221 them, and I589 was left,7604 that I fell5307 upon5921 my face,6440 and cried,2199 and said,559 Ah162 Lord136 GOD!3069 wilt thou859 destroy7843 853 all3605 the residue7611 of Israel3478 in thy pouring out8210 853 of thy fury2534 upon5921 Jerusalem?3389

9  Then said559 he unto413 me, The iniquity5771 of the house1004 of Israel3478 and Judah3063 is exceeding3966 3966 great,1419 and the land776 is full4390 of blood,1818 and the city5892 full4390 of perverseness:4297 for3588 they say,559 The LORD3068 hath forsaken5800 853 the earth,776 and the LORD3068 seeth7200 not.369

10  And as for me589 also,1571 mine eye5869 shall not3808 spare,2347 neither3808 will I have pity,2550 but I will recompense5414 their way1870 upon their head.7218

11  And, behold,2009 the man376 clothed3847 with linen,906 which834 had the inkhorn7083 by his side,4975 reported7725 the matter,1697 saying,559 I have done6213 as3605 834 thou hast commanded6680 me.


Ezekiel 10


1  Then I looked,7200 and, behold,2009 in413 the firmament7549 that834 was above5921 the head7218 of the cherubims3742 there appeared7200 over5921 them as it were a sapphire5601 stone,68 as the appearance4758 of the likeness1823 of a throne.3678

2  And he spoke559 unto413 the man376 clothed3847 with linen,906 and said,559 Go in935 413 between996 the wheels,1534 even under8478 the cherub,3742 and fill4390 thine hand2651 with coals1513 of fire784 from between4480 996 the cherubims,3742 and scatter2236 them over5921 the city.5892 And he went935 in in my sight.5869

3  Now the cherubims3742 stood5975 on the right side4480 3225 of the house,1004 when the man376 went in;935 and the cloud6051 filled4390 the inner6442 853 court.2691

4  Then the glory3519 of the LORD3068 went up7311 from4480 5921 the cherub,3742 and stood over5921 the threshold4670 of the house;1004 and the house1004 was filled4390 with854 the cloud,6051 and the court2691 was full4390 of854 the brightness5051 of the LORD's3068 glory.3519

5  And the sound6963 of the cherubims'3742 wings3671 was heard8085 even to5704 the outer2435 court,2691 as the voice6963 of the Almighty7706 God410 when he speaketh.1696

6  And it came to pass,1961 that when he had commanded6680 853 the man376 clothed3847 with linen,906 saying,559 Take3947 fire784 from between4480 996 the wheels,1534 from between4480 996 the cherubims;3742 then he went in,935 and stood5975 beside681 the wheels.212

7  And one cherub3742 stretched forth7971 853 his hand3027 from between4480 996 the cherubims3742 unto413 the fire784 that834 was between996 the cherubims,3742 and took5375 thereof, and put5414 it into413 the hands2651 of him that was clothed3847 with linen:906 who took3947 it, and went out.3318

8  And there appeared7200 in the cherubims3742 the form8403 of a man's120 hand3027 under8478 their wings.3671

9  And when I looked,7200 behold2009 the four702 wheels212 by681 the cherubims,3742 one259 wheel212 by681 one259 cherub,3742 and another259 wheel212 by681 another259 cherub:3742 and the appearance4758 of the wheels212 was as the color5869 of a beryl8658 stone.68

10  And as for their appearances,4758 they four702 had one259 likeness,1823 as if834 a wheel212 had been1961 in the midst8432 of a wheel.212

11  When they went,1980 they went1980 upon413 their four702 sides;7253 they turned5437 not3808 as they went,1980 but3588 to the place4725 whither834 the head7218 looked6437 they followed1980 310 it; they turned5437 not3808 as they went.1980

12  And their whole3605 body,1320 and their backs,1354 and their hands,3027 and their wings,3671 and the wheels,212 were full4392 of eyes5869 round about,5439 even the wheels212 that they four702 had.

13  As for the wheels,212 it was cried7121 unto them in my hearing,241 O wheel.1534

14  And every one259 had four702 faces:6440 the first259 face6440 was the face6440 of a cherub,3742 and the second8145 face6440 was the face6440 of a man,120 and the third7992 the face6440 of a lion,738 and the fourth7243 the face6440 of an eagle.5404

15  And the cherubims3742 were lifted up.7426 This1931 is the living creature2416 that834 I saw7200 by the river5104 of Chebar.3529

16  And when the cherubims3742 went,1980 the wheels212 went1980 by681 them: and when the cherubims3742 lifted up5375 853 their wings3671 to mount up7311 from4480 5921 the earth,776 the same1992 wheels212 also1571 turned5437 not3808 from beside4480 681 them.

17  When they stood,5975 these stood;5975 and when they were lifted up,7311 these lifted up7426 themselves also: for3588 the spirit7307 of the living creature2416 was in them.

18  Then the glory3519 of the LORD3068 departed3318 from off4480 5921 the threshold4670 of the house,1004 and stood5975 over5921 the cherubims.3742

19  And the cherubims3742 lifted up5375 853 their wings,3671 and mounted up7426 from4480 the earth776 in my sight:5869 when they went out,3318 the wheels212 also were beside5980 them, and every one stood5975 at the door6607 of the east6931 gate8179 of the LORD's3068 house;1004 and the glory3519 of the God430 of Israel3478 was over5921 them above.4480 4605

20  This1931 is the living creature2416 that834 I saw7200 under8478 the God430 of Israel3478 by the river5104 of Chebar;3529 and I knew3045 that3588 they1992 were the cherubims.3742

21  Every one259 had four faces apiece,702 702 6440 and every one259 four702 wings;3671 and the likeness1823 of the hands3027 of a man120 was under8478 their wings.3671

22  And the likeness1823 of their faces6440 was the same1992 faces6440 which834 I saw7200 by5921 the river5104 of Chebar,3529 their appearances4758 and themselves: they went1980 every one376 straight forward.413 5676 6440


Ezekiel 11


1  Moreover the spirit7307 lifted me up,5375 853 and brought935 me unto413 the east6931 gate8179 of the LORD's3068 house,1004 which looketh6437 eastward:6921 and behold2009 at the door6607 of the gate8179 five2568 and twenty6242 men;376 among8432 whom I saw7200 853 Jaazaniah2970 the son1121 of Azur,5809 and Pelatiah6410 the son1121 of Benaiah,1141 princes8269 of the people.5971

2  Then said559 he unto413 me, Son1121 of man,120 these428 are the men376 that devise2803 mischief,205 and give3289 wicked7451 counsel6098 in this2063 city:5892

3  Which say,559 It is not3808 near;7138 let us build1129 houses:1004 this1931 city is the caldron,5518 and we587 be the flesh.1320

4  Therefore3651 prophesy5012 against5921 them, prophesy,5012 O son1121 of man.120

5  And the Spirit7307 of the LORD3068 fell5307 upon5921 me, and said559 unto413 me, Speak;559 Thus3541 saith559 the LORD;3068 Thus3651 have ye said,559 O house1004 of Israel:3478 for I589 know3045 the things that come4609 into your mind,7307 every one of them.

6  Ye have multiplied7235 your slain2491 in this2063 city,5892 and ye have filled4390 the streets2351 thereof with the slain.2491

7  Therefore3651 thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 Your slain2491 whom834 ye have laid7760 in the midst8432 of it, they1992 are the flesh,1320 and this1931 city is the caldron:5518 but I will bring you forth3318 853 out of the midst4480 8432 of it.

8  Ye have feared3372 the sword;2719 and I will bring935 a sword2719 upon5921 you, saith5002 the Lord136 GOD.3069

9  And I will bring3318 you out of the midst4480 8432 thereof, and deliver5414 you into the hands3027 of strangers,2114 and will execute6213 judgments8201 among you.

10  Ye shall fall5307 by the sword;2719 I will judge8199 you in5921 the border1366 of Israel;3478 and ye shall know3045 that3588 I589 am the LORD.3068

11  This1931 city shall not3808 be1961 your caldron,5518 neither shall ye859 be1961 the flesh1320 in the midst8432 thereof; but I will judge8199 you in413 the border1366 of Israel:3478

12  And ye shall know3045 that3588 I589 am the LORD:3068 for834 ye have not3808 walked1980 in my statutes,2706 neither3808 executed6213 my judgments,4941 but have done6213 after the manners4941 of the heathen1471 that834 are round about5439 you.

13  And it came to pass,1961 when I prophesied,5012 that Pelatiah6410 the son1121 of Benaiah1141 died.4191 Then fell I down5307 upon5921 my face,6440 and cried2199 with a loud1419 voice,6963 and said,559 Ah162 Lord136 GOD!3069 wilt thou859 make6213 a full end3617 853 of the remnant7611 of Israel?3478

14  Again the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 unto413 me, saying,559

15  Son1121 of man,120 thy brethren,251 even thy brethren,251 the men376 of thy kindred,1353 and all3605 the house1004 of Israel3478 wholly,3605 are they unto whom834 the inhabitants3427 of Jerusalem3389 have said,559 Get you far7368 from4480 5921 the LORD:3068 unto us is this1931 land776 given5414 in possession.4181

16  Therefore3651 say,559 Thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 Although3588 I have cast them far off7368 among the heathen,1471 and although3588 I have scattered6327 them among the countries,776 yet will I be1961 to them as a little4592 sanctuary4720 in the countries776 where834 8033 they shall come.935

17  Therefore3651 say,559 Thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 I will even gather6908 you from4480 the people,5971 and assemble622 you out of4480 the countries776 where834 ye have been scattered,6327 and I will give5414 you 853 the land127 of Israel.3478

18  And they shall come935 thither,8033 and they shall take away5493 853 all3605 the detestable things8251 thereof and all3605 the abominations8441 thereof from4480 thence.

19  And I will give5414 them one259 heart,3820 and I will put5414 a new2319 spirit7307 within7130 you; and I will take5493 the stony68 heart3820 out of their flesh,4480 1320 and will give5414 them a heart3820 of flesh:1320

20  That4616 they may walk1980 in my statutes,2708 and keep8104 mine ordinances,4941 and do6213 them:853 and they shall be1961 my people,5971 and I589 will be1961 their God.430

21  But as for them whose heart3820 walketh1980 after413 the heart3820 of their detestable things8251 and their abominations,8441 I will recompense5414 their way1870 upon their own heads,7218 saith5002 the Lord136 GOD.3069

22  Then did the cherubims3742 lift up5375 853 their wings,3671 and the wheels212 beside5980 them; and the glory3519 of the God430 of Israel3478 was over5921 them above.4480 4605

23  And the glory3519 of the LORD3068 went up5927 from4480 5921 the midst8432 of the city,5892 and stood5975 upon5921 the mountain2022 which834 is on the east side4480 6924 of the city.5892

24  Afterwards the spirit7307 took me up,5375 and brought935 me in a vision4758 by the Spirit7307 of God430 into Chaldea,3778 to413 them of the captivity.1473 So the vision4758 that834 I had seen7200 went up5927 from4480 5921 me.

25  Then I spoke1696 unto413 them of the captivity1473 853 all3605 the things1697 that834 the LORD3068 had showed7200 me.


Ezekiel 12


1  The word1697 of the LORD3068 also came1961 unto413 me, saying,559

2  Son1121 of man,120 thou859 dwellest3427 in the midst8432 of a rebellious4805 house,1004 which834 have eyes5869 to see,7200 and see7200 not;3808 they have ears241 to hear,8085 and hear8085 not:3808 for3588 they1992 are a rebellious4805 house.1004

3  Therefore, thou859 son1121 of man,120 prepare6213 thee stuff3627 for removing,1473 and remove1540 by day3119 in their sight;5869 and thou shalt remove1540 from thy place4480 4725 to413 another312 place4725 in their sight:5869 it may be194 they will consider,7200 though3588 they1992 be a rebellious4805 house.1004

4  Then shalt thou bring forth3318 thy stuff3627 by day3119 in their sight,5869 as stuff3627 for removing:1473 and thou859 shalt go forth3318 at even6153 in their sight,5869 as they that go forth4161 into captivity.1473

5  Dig2864 thou through the wall7023 in their sight,5869 and carry out3318 thereby.

6  In their sight5869 shalt thou bear5375 it upon5921 thy shoulders,3802 and carry it forth3318 in the twilight:5939 thou shalt cover3680 thy face,6440 that thou see7200 not3808 853 the ground:776 for3588 I have set5414 thee for a sign4159 unto the house1004 of Israel.3478

7  And I did6213 so3651 as834 I was commanded:6680 I brought forth3318 my stuff3627 by day,3119 as stuff3627 for captivity,1473 and in the even6153 I digged2864 through the wall7023 with mine hand;3027 I brought it forth3318 in the twilight,5939 and I bore5375 it upon5921 my shoulder3802 in their sight.5869

8  And in the morning1242 came1961 the word1697 of the LORD3068 unto413 me, saying,559

9  Son1121 of man,120 hath not3808 the house1004 of Israel,3478 the rebellious4805 house,1004 said559 unto413 thee, What4100 doest6213 thou?859

10  Say559 thou unto413 them, Thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 This2088 burden4853 concerneth the prince5387 in Jerusalem,3389 and all3605 the house1004 of Israel3478 that834 are among8432 them.

11  Say,559 I589 am your sign:4159 like as834 I have done,6213 so3651 shall it be done6213 unto them: they shall remove1473 and go1980 into captivity.7628

12  And the prince5387 that834 is among8432 them shall bear5375 upon413 his shoulder3802 in the twilight,5939 and shall go forth:3318 they shall dig2864 through the wall7023 to carry out3318 thereby: he shall cover3680 his face,6440 that3282 834 he1931 see7200 not3808 853 the ground776 with his eyes.5869

13  853 My net7568 also will I spread6566 upon5921 him, and he shall be taken8610 in my snare:4686 and I will bring935 him to Babylon894 to the land776 of the Chaldeans;3778 yet shall he not3808 see7200 it, though he shall die4191 there.8033

14  And I will scatter2219 toward every3605 wind7307 all3605 that834 are about5439 him to help5828 him, and all3605 his bands;102 and I will draw out7324 the sword2719 after310 them.

15  And they shall know3045 that3588 I589 am the LORD,3068 when I shall scatter6327 them among the nations,1471 and disperse2219 them in the countries.776

16  But I will leave3498 a few4557 men376 of4480 them from the sword,4480 2719 from the famine,4480 7458 and from the pestilence;4480 1698 that4616 they may declare5608 853 all3605 their abominations8441 among the heathen1471 whither834 8033 they come;935 and they shall know3045 that3588 I589 am the LORD.3068

17  Moreover the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 to413 me, saying,559

18  Son1121 of man,120 eat398 thy bread3899 with quaking,7494 and drink8354 thy water4325 with trembling7269 and with carefulness;1674

19  And say559 unto413 the people5971 of the land,776 Thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD3069 of the inhabitants3427 of Jerusalem,3389 and of413 the land127 of Israel;3478 They shall eat398 their bread3899 with carefulness,1674 and drink8354 their water4325 with astonishment,8078 that4616 her land776 may be desolate3456 from all that is therein,4480 4393 because of the violence4480 2555 of all3605 them that dwell3427 therein.

20  And the cities5892 that are inhabited3427 shall be laid waste,2717 and the land776 shall be1961 desolate;8077 and ye shall know3045 that3588 I589 am the LORD.3068

21  And the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 unto413 me, saying,559

22  Son1121 of man,120 what4100 is that2088 proverb4912 that ye have in5921 the land127 of Israel,3478 saying,559 The days3117 are prolonged,748 and every3605 vision2377 faileth?6

23  Tell559 413 them therefore,3651 Thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 I will make this2088 proverb4912 853 to cease,7673 and they shall no3808 more5750 use it as a proverb4911 853 in Israel;3478 but3588 518 say1696 unto413 them, The days3117 are at hand,7126 and the effect1697 of every3605 vision.2377

24  For3588 there shall be1961 no3808 more5750 any3605 vain7723 vision2377 nor flattering2509 divination4738 within8432 the house1004 of Israel.3478

25  For3588 I589 am the LORD:3068 I will speak,1696 and the word1697 853 that834 I shall speak1696 shall come to pass;6213 it shall be no3808 more5750 prolonged:4900 for3588 in your days,3117 O rebellious4805 house,1004 will I say1696 the word,1697 and will perform6213 it, saith5002 the Lord136 GOD.3069

26  Again the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 to413 me, saying,559

27  Son1121 of man,120 behold,2009 they of the house1004 of Israel3478 say,559 The vision2377 that834 he1931 seeth2372 is for many7227 days3117 to come, and he1931 prophesieth5012 of the times6256 that are far off.7350

28  Therefore3651 say559 unto413 them, Thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 There shall none3808 3605 of my words1697 be prolonged4900 any more,5750 but the word1697 which834 I have spoken1696 shall be done,6213 saith5002 the Lord136 GOD.3069


Ezekiel 13


1  And the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 unto413 me, saying,559

2  Son1121 of man,120 prophesy5012 against413 the prophets5030 of Israel3478 that prophesy,5012 and say559 thou unto them that prophesy5030 out of their own hearts,4480 3820 Hear8085 ye the word1697 of the LORD;3068

3  Thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 Woe1945 unto5921 the foolish5036 prophets,5030 that834 follow1980 310 their own spirit,7307 and have seen7200 nothing!1115

4  O Israel,3478 thy prophets5030 are1961 like the foxes7776 in the deserts.2723

5  Ye have not3808 gone up5927 into the gaps,6556 neither made up1443 the hedge1447 for5921 the house1004 of Israel3478 to stand5975 in the battle4421 in the day3117 of the LORD.3068

6  They have seen2372 vanity7723 and lying3577 divination,7081 saying,559 The LORD3068 saith:5002 and the LORD3068 hath not3808 sent7971 them: and they have made others to hope3176 that they would confirm6965 the word.1697

7  Have ye not3808 seen2372 a vain7723 vision,4236 and have ye not spoken559 a lying3577 divination,4738 whereas ye say,559 The LORD3068 saith5002 it; albeit I589 have not3808 spoken?1696

8  Therefore3651 thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 Because3282 ye have spoken1696 vanity,7723 and seen2372 lies,3577 therefore,3651 behold,2009 I am against413 you, saith5002 the Lord136 GOD.3069

9  And mine hand3027 shall be1961 upon413 the prophets5030 that see2372 vanity,7723 and that divine7080 lies:3577 they shall not3808 be1961 in the assembly5475 of my people,5971 neither3808 shall they be written3789 in the writing3791 of the house1004 of Israel,3478 neither3808 shall they enter935 into413 the land127 of Israel;3478 and ye shall know3045 that3588 I589 am the Lord136 GOD.3069

10  Because,3282 even because3282 they have seduced2937 853 my people,5971 saying,559 Peace;7965 and there was no369 peace;7965 and one1931 built up1129 a wall,2434 and, lo,2009 others daubed2902 it with untempered8602 mortar:

11  Say559 unto413 them which daub2902 it with untempered8602 mortar, that it shall fall:5307 there shall be1961 an overflowing7857 shower;1653 and ye,859 O great hailstones,68 417 shall fall;5307 and a stormy5591 wind7307 shall rend1234 it.

12  Lo,2009 when the wall7023 is fallen,5307 shall it not3808 be said559 unto413 you, Where346 is the daubing2915 wherewith834 ye have daubed2902 it?

13  Therefore3651 thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 I will even rend1234 it with a stormy5591 wind7307 in my fury;2534 and there shall be1961 an overflowing7857 shower1653 in mine anger,639 and great hailstones68 417 in my fury2534 to consume3617 it.

14  So will I break down2040 853 the wall7023 that834 ye have daubed2902 with untempered8602 mortar, and bring it down5060 to413 the ground,776 so that the foundation3247 thereof shall be discovered,1540 and it shall fall,5307 and ye shall be consumed3615 in the midst8432 thereof: and ye shall know3045 that3588 I589 am the LORD.3068

15  Thus will I accomplish3615 853 my wrath2534 upon the wall,7023 and upon them that have daubed2902 it with untempered8602 mortar, and will say559 unto you, The wall7023 is no369 more, neither369 they that daubed2902 it;

16  To wit, the prophets5030 of Israel3478 which prophesy5012 concerning413 Jerusalem,3389 and which see2372 visions2377 of peace7965 for her, and there is no369 peace,7965 saith5002 the Lord136 GOD.3069

17  Likewise, thou859 son1121 of man,120 set7760 thy face6440 against413 the daughters1323 of thy people,5971 which prophesy5012 out of4480 their own heart;3820 and prophesy5012 thou against5921 them,

18  And say,559 Thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 Woe1945 to the women that sew8609 pillows3704 to5921 all3605 armholes,679 3027 and make6213 kerchiefs4555 upon5921 the head7218 of every3605 stature6967 to hunt6679 souls!5315 Will ye hunt6679 the souls5315 of my people,5971 and will ye save the souls alive2421 5315 that come unto you?

19  And will ye pollute2490 me among413 my people5971 for handfuls8168 of barley8184 and for pieces6595 of bread,3899 to slay4191 the souls5315 that834 should not3808 die,4191 and to save the souls alive2421 5315 that834 should not3808 live,2421 by your lying3576 to my people5971 that hear8085 your lies?3577

20  Wherefore3651 thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 Behold,2009 I am against413 your pillows,3704 wherewith834 ye859 there8033 hunt6679 853 the souls5315 to make them fly,6524 and I will tear7167 them from4480 5921 your arms,2220 and will let the souls go,7971 853 5315 even 853 the souls5315 that834 ye859 hunt6679 to make them fly.6524

21  853 Your kerchiefs4555 also will I tear,7167 and deliver5337 853 my people5971 out of your hand,4480 3027 and they shall be1961 no3808 more5750 in your hand3027 to be hunted;4686 and ye shall know3045 that3588 I589 am the LORD.3068

22  Because3282 with lies8267 ye have made the heart3820 of the righteous6662 sad,3512 whom I589 have not3808 made sad;3510 and strengthened2388 the hands3027 of the wicked,7563 that he should not1115 return7725 from his wicked way,4480 1870 7451 by promising him life:2421

23  Therefore3651 ye shall see2372 no3808 more5750 vanity,7723 nor3808 divine7080 divinations:7081 for I will deliver5337 853 my people5971 out of your hand:4480 3027 and ye shall know3045 that3588 I589 am the LORD.3068


Ezekiel 14


1  Then came935 certain376 of the elders4480 2205 of Israel3478 unto413 me, and sat3427 before6440 me.

2  And the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 unto413 me, saying,559

3  Son1121 of man,120 these428 men376 have set up5927 their idols1544 in5921 their heart,3820 and put5414 the stumblingblock4383 of their iniquity5771 before5227 their face:6440 should I be inquired of at all1875 1875 by them?

4  Therefore3651 speak1696 unto them, and say559 unto413 them, Thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 Every man376 376 of the house4480 1004 of Israel3478 that834 setteth up5927 853 his idols1544 in413 his heart,3820 and putteth7760 the stumblingblock4383 of his iniquity5771 before5227 his face,6440 and cometh935 to413 the prophet;5030 I589 the LORD3068 will answer6030 him that cometh935 according to the multitude7230 of his idols;1544

5  That4616 I may take8610 853 the house1004 of Israel3478 in their own heart,3820 because834 they are all3605 estranged2114 from4480 5921 me through their idols.1544

6  Therefore3651 say559 unto413 the house1004 of Israel,3478 Thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 Repent,7725 and turn7725 yourselves from4480 5921 your idols;1544 and turn away7725 your faces6440 from4480 5921 all3605 your abominations.8441

7  For3588 every one376 376 of the house4480 1004 of Israel,3478 or of the stranger4480 1616 that834 sojourneth1481 in Israel,3478 which separateth himself5144 from4480 310 me, and setteth up5927 his idols1544 in413 his heart,3820 and putteth7760 the stumblingblock4383 of his iniquity5771 before5227 his face,6440 and cometh935 to413 a prophet5030 to inquire1875 of him concerning me; I589 the LORD3068 will answer6030 him by myself:

8  And I will set5414 my face6440 against that1931 man,376 and will make7760 him a sign226 and a proverb,4912 and I will cut him off3772 from the midst4480 8432 of my people;5971 and ye shall know3045 that3588 I589 am the LORD.3068

9  And if3588 the prophet5030 be deceived6601 when he hath spoken1696 a thing,1697 I589 the LORD3068 have deceived6601 853 that1931 prophet,5030 and I will stretch out5186 853 my hand3027 upon5921 him, and will destroy8045 him from the midst4480 8432 of my people5971 Israel.3478

10  And they shall bear5375 the punishment of their iniquity:5771 the punishment5771 of the prophet5030 shall be1961 even as the punishment5771 of him that seeketh1875 unto him;

11  That4616 the house1004 of Israel3478 may go no3808 more5750 astray8582 from4480 310 me, neither3808 be polluted2930 any more5750 with all3605 their transgressions;6588 but that they may be1961 my people,5971 and I589 may be1961 their God,430 saith5002 the Lord136 GOD.3069

12  The word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 again to413 me, saying,559

13  Son1121 of man,120 when3588 the land776 sinneth2398 against me by trespassing4603 grievously,4604 then will I stretch out5186 mine hand3027 upon5921 it, and will break7665 the staff4294 of the bread3899 thereof, and will send7971 famine7458 upon it, and will cut off3772 man120 and beast929 from4480 it:

14  Though these428 three7969 men,376 Noah,5146 Daniel,1840 and Job,347 were1961 in8432 it, they1992 should deliver5337 but their own souls5315 by their righteousness,6666 saith5002 the Lord136 GOD.3069

15  If3863 I cause noisome7451 beasts2416 to pass5674 through the land,776 and they spoil7921 it, so that it be1961 desolate,8077 that no man4480 1097 may pass through5674 because4480 6440 of the beasts:2416

16  Though these428 three7969 men376 were in8432 it, as I589 live,2416 saith5002 the Lord136 GOD,3069 they1992 shall deliver5337 neither518 sons1121 nor518 daughters;1323 they only905 shall be delivered,5337 but the land776 shall be1961 desolate.8077

17  Or176 if I bring935 a sword2719 upon5921 that1931 land,776 and say,559 Sword,2719 go5674 through the land;776 so that I cut off3772 man120 and beast929 from4480 it:

18  Though these428 three7969 men376 were in8432 it, as I589 live,2416 saith5002 the Lord136 GOD,3069 they shall deliver5337 neither3808 sons1121 nor daughters,1323 but3588 they1992 only905 shall be delivered themselves.5337

19  Or176 if I send7971 a pestilence1698 into413 that1931 land,776 and pour out8210 my fury2534 upon5921 it in blood,1818 to cut off3772 from4480 it man120 and beast:929

20  Though Noah,5146 Daniel,1840 and Job,347 were in8432 it, as I589 live,2416 saith5002 the Lord136 GOD,3069 they1992 shall deliver5337 neither518 son1121 nor518 daughter;1323 they shall but deliver5337 their own souls5315 by their righteousness.6666

21  For3588 thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 How much more637 when3588 I send7971 my four702 sore7451 judgments8201 upon413 Jerusalem,3389 the sword,2719 and the famine,7458 and the noisome7451 beast,2416 and the pestilence,1698 to cut off3772 from4480 it man120 and beast?929

22  Yet, behold,2009 therein shall be left3498 a remnant6413 that shall be brought forth,3318 both sons1121 and daughters:1323 behold,2009 they shall come forth3318 unto413 you, and ye shall see7200 853 their way1870 and their doings:5949 and ye shall be comforted5162 concerning5921 the evil7451 that834 I have brought935 upon5921 Jerusalem,3389 even concerning854 all3605 that834 I have brought935 upon5921 it.

23  And they shall comfort5162 you, when3588 ye see7200 853 their ways1870 and their doings:5949 and ye shall know3045 that3588 I have not3808 done6213 without cause2600 853 all3605 that834 I have done6213 in it, saith5002 the Lord136 GOD.3069


Ezekiel 15


1  And the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 unto413 me, saying,559

2  Son1121 of man,120 What4100 is1961 the vine1612 tree6086 more than any4480 3605 tree,6086 or than a branch2156 which834 is1961 among the trees6086 of the forest?3293

3  Shall wood6086 be taken3947 thereof4480 to do6213 any work?4399 or518 will men take3947 a pin3489 of4480 it to hang8518 any3605 vessel3627 thereon?5921

4  Behold,2009 it is cast5414 into the fire784 for fuel;402 the fire784 devoureth398 853 both8147 the ends7098 of it, and the midst8432 of it is burned.2787 Is it meet6743 for any work?4399

5  Behold,2009 when it was1961 whole,8549 it was meet6213 for no3808 work:4399 how much less637 shall it be meet6213 yet5750 for any work,4399 when3588 the fire784 hath devoured398 it, and it is burned?2787

6  Therefore3651 thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 As834 the vine1612 tree6086 among the trees6086 of the forest,3293 which834 I have given5414 to the fire784 for fuel,402 so3651 will I give5414 853 the inhabitants3427 of Jerusalem.3389

7  And I will set5414 853 my face6440 against them; they shall go out3318 from one fire,784 and another fire784 shall devour398 them; and ye shall know3045 that3588 I589 am the LORD,3068 when I set7760 853 my face6440 against them.

8  And I will make5414 853 the land776 desolate,8077 because3282 they have committed4603 a trespass,4604 saith5002 the Lord136 GOD.3069


Ezekiel 16


1  Again the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 unto413 me, saying,559

2  Son1121 of man,120 cause 853 Jerusalem3389 to know3045 853 her abominations,8441

3  And say,559 Thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD3069 unto Jerusalem;3389 Thy birth4351 and thy nativity4138 is of the land4480 776 of Canaan;3669 thy father1 was an Amorite,567 and thy mother517 a Hittite.2851

4  And as for thy nativity,4138 in the day3117 thou wast born3205 thy navel8270 was not3808 cut,3772 neither3808 wast thou washed7364 in water4325 to supple4935 thee; thou wast not3808 salted at all,4414 4414 nor3808 swaddled at all.2853 2853

5  None3808 eye5869 pitied2347 5921 thee, to do6213 any259 of these4480 428 unto thee, to have compassion2550 upon5921 thee; but thou wast cast out7993 in413 the open6440 field,7704 to the loathing1604 of thy person,5315 in the day3117 that thou wast born.3205

6  And when I passed5674 by5921 thee, and saw7200 thee polluted947 in thine own blood,1818 I said559 unto thee when thou wast in thy blood,1818 Live;2421 yea, I said559 unto thee when thou wast in thy blood,1818 Live.2421

7  I have caused5414 thee to multiply7233 as the bud6780 of the field,7704 and thou hast increased7235 and waxen great,1431 and thou art come935 to excellent5716 ornaments:5716 thy breasts7699 are fashioned,3559 and thine hair8181 is grown,6779 whereas thou859 wast naked5903 and bare.6181

8  Now when I passed5674 by5921 thee, and looked upon7200 thee, behold,2009 thy time6256 was the time6256 of love;1730 and I spread6566 my skirt3671 over5921 thee, and covered3680 thy nakedness:6172 yea, I swore7650 unto thee, and entered935 into a covenant1285 with854 thee, saith5002 the Lord136 GOD,3069 and thou becamest1961 mine.

9  Then washed7364 I thee with water;4325 yea, I throughly washed away7857 thy blood1818 from4480 5921 thee, and I anointed5480 thee with oil.8081

10  I clothed3847 thee also with embroidered work,7553 and shod5274 thee with badgers' skin,8476 and I girded thee about2280 with fine linen,8336 and I covered3680 thee with silk.4897

11  I decked5710 thee also with ornaments,5716 and I put5414 bracelets6781 upon5921 thy hands,3027 and a chain7242 on5921 thy neck.1627

12  And I put5414 a jewel5141 on5921 thy forehead,639 and earrings5694 in5921 thine ears,241 and a beautiful8597 crown5850 upon thine head.7218

13  Thus wast thou decked5710 with gold2091 and silver;3701 and thy raiment4403 was of fine linen,8336 and silk,4897 and embroidered work;7553 thou didst eat398 fine flour,5560 and honey,1706 and oil:8081 and thou wast exceeding beautiful,3302 3966 3966 and thou didst prosper6743 into a kingdom.4410

14  And thy renown8034 went forth3318 among the heathen1471 for thy beauty:3308 for3588 it1931 was perfect3632 through my comeliness,1926 which834 I had put7760 upon5921 thee, saith5002 the Lord136 GOD.3069

15  But thou didst trust982 in thine own beauty,3308 and playedst the harlot2181 because5921 of thy renown,8034 and pouredst out8210 853 thy fornications8457 on5921 every one3605 that passed by;5674 his it was.1961

16  And of thy garments4480 899 thou didst take,3947 and deckedst6213 thy high places1116 with divers colors,2921 and playedst the harlot2181 thereupon:5921 the like things shall not3808 come,935 neither3808 shall it be1961 so.

17  Thou hast also taken3947 thy fair8597 jewels3627 of my gold4480 2091 and of my silver,4480 3701 which834 I had given5414 thee, and madest6213 to thyself images6754 of men,2145 and didst commit whoredom2181 with them,

18  And tookest3947 thine embroidered7553 853 garments,899 and coveredst3680 them: and thou hast set5414 mine oil8081 and mine incense7004 before6440 them.

19  My meat3899 also which834 I gave5414 thee, fine flour,5560 and oil,8081 and honey,1706 wherewith I fed398 thee, thou hast even set5414 it before6440 them for a sweet5207 savor:7381 and thus it was,1961 saith5002 the Lord136 GOD.3069

20  Moreover thou hast taken3947 853 thy sons1121 and thy daughters,1323 whom834 thou hast borne3205 unto me, and these hast thou sacrificed2076 unto them to be devoured.398 Is this of4480 thy whoredoms8457 a small matter,4592

21  That thou hast slain7819 853 my children,1121 and delivered5414 them to cause them to pass through5674 the fire for them?

22  And in all3605 thine abominations8441 and thy whoredoms8457 thou hast not3808 remembered2142 853 the days3117 of thy youth,5271 when thou wast1961 naked5903 and bare,6181 and wast1961 polluted947 in thy blood.1818

23  And it came to pass1961 after310 all3605 thy wickedness,7451 (woe,188 woe188 unto thee! saith5002 the Lord136 GOD;)3069

24  That thou hast also built1129 unto thee an eminent place,1354 and hast made6213 thee a high place7413 in every3605 street.7339

25  Thou hast built1129 thy high place7413 at413 every3605 head7218 of the way,1870 and hast made 853 thy beauty3308 to be abhorred,8581 and hast opened6589 853 thy feet7272 to every one3605 that passed by,5674 and multiplied7235 853 thy whoredoms.8457

26  Thou hast also committed fornication2181 with413 the Egyptians1121 4714 thy neighbors,7934 great1432 of flesh;1320 and hast increased7235 853 thy whoredoms,8457 to provoke me to anger.3707

27  Behold,2009 therefore I have stretched out5186 my hand3027 over5921 thee, and have diminished1639 thine ordinary2706 food, and delivered5414 thee unto the will5315 of them that hate8130 thee, the daughters1323 of the Philistines,6430 which are ashamed3637 of thy lewd2154 way.4480 1870

28  Thou hast played the whore2181 also with413 the Assyrians,1121 804 because thou wast unsatiable;4480 1115 7654 yea, thou hast played the harlot2181 with them, and yet1571 couldest not3808 be satisfied.7646

29  Thou hast moreover multiplied7235 853 thy fornication8457 in413 the land776 of Canaan3667 unto Chaldea;3778 and yet1571 thou wast not3808 satisfied7646 herewith.2063

30  How4100 weak535 is thine heart,3826 saith5002 the Lord136 GOD,3069 seeing thou doest6213 853 all3605 these428 things, the work4639 of an imperious7986 whorish2181 woman;802

31  In that thou buildest1129 thine eminent place1354 in the head7218 of every3605 way,1870 and makest6213 thine high place7413 in every3605 street;7339 and hast not3808 been1961 as a harlot,2181 in that thou scornest7046 hire;868

32  But as a wife802 that committeth adultery,5003 which taketh3947 853 strangers2114 instead8478 of her husband!376

33  They give5414 gifts5078 to all3605 whores:2181 but thou859 givest5414 853 thy gifts5083 to all3605 thy lovers,157 and hirest7809 them, that they may come935 unto413 thee on every side4480 5439 for thy whoredom.8457

34  And the contrary2016 is1961 in thee from4480 other women802 in thy whoredoms,8457 whereas none3808 followeth310 thee to commit whoredoms:2181 and in that thou givest5414 a reward,868 and no3808 reward868 is given5414 unto thee, therefore thou art1961 contrary.2016

35  Wherefore,3651 O harlot,2181 hear8085 the word1697 of the LORD:3068

36  Thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 Because3282 thy filthiness5178 was poured out,8210 and thy nakedness6172 discovered1540 through thy whoredoms8457 with5921 thy lovers,157 and with5921 all3605 the idols1544 of thy abominations,8441 and by the blood1818 of thy children,1121 which834 thou didst give5414 unto them;

37  Behold,2009 therefore3651 I will gather6908 853 all3605 thy lovers,157 with5921 whom834 thou hast taken pleasure,6149 and all3605 them that834 thou hast loved,157 with5921 all3605 them that834 thou hast hated;8130 I will even gather6908 them round about4480 5439 against5921 thee, and will discover1540 thy nakedness6172 unto413 them, that they may see7200 853 all3605 thy nakedness.6172

38  And I will judge8199 thee, as women that break wedlock5003 and shed8210 blood1818 are judged;4941 and I will give5414 thee blood1818 in fury2534 and jealousy.7068

39  And I will also give5414 thee into their hand,3027 and they shall throw down2040 thine eminent place,1354 and shall break down5422 thy high places:7413 they shall strip6584 thee also of thy clothes,899 and shall take3947 thy fair8597 jewels,3627 and leave5117 thee naked5903 and bare.6181

40  They shall also bring up5927 a company6951 against5921 thee, and they shall stone7275 thee with stones,68 and thrust thee through1333 with their swords.2719

41  And they shall burn8313 thine houses1004 with fire,784 and execute6213 judgments8201 upon thee in the sight5869 of many7227 women:802 and I will cause thee to cease7673 from playing the harlot,4480 2181 and thou also1571 shalt give5414 no3808 hire868 any more.5750

42  So will I make my fury2534 toward thee to rest,5117 and my jealousy7068 shall depart5493 from4480 thee, and I will be quiet,8252 and will be no3808 more5750 angry.3707

43  Because3282 834 thou hast not3808 remembered2142 853 the days3117 of thy youth,5271 but hast fretted7264 me in all3605 these428 things; behold,1887 therefore I589 also1571 will recompense5414 thy way1870 upon thine head,7218 saith5002 the Lord136 GOD:3069 and thou shalt not3808 commit6213 853 this lewdness2154 above5921 all3605 thine abominations.8441

44  Behold,2009 every one3605 that useth proverbs4911 shall use this proverb4911 against5921 thee, saying,559 As is the mother,517 so is her daughter.1323

45  Thou859 art thy mother's517 daughter,1323 that loatheth1602 her husband376 and her children;1121 and thou859 art the sister269 of thy sisters,269 which834 loathed1602 their husbands376 and their children:1121 your mother517 was a Hittite,2851 and your father1 an Amorite.567

46  And thine elder1419 sister269 is Samaria,8111 she1931 and her daughters1323 that dwell3427 at5921 thy left hand:8040 and thy younger6996 sister,269 that dwelleth3427 at thy right hand,4480 3225 is Sodom5467 and her daughters.1323

47  Yet hast thou not3808 walked1980 after their ways,1870 nor done6213 after their abominations:8441 but, as if that were a very6985 little4592 thing, thou wast corrupted7843 more than4480 they in all3605 thy ways.1870

48  As I589 live,2416 saith5002 the Lord136 GOD,3069 Sodom5467 thy sister269 hath not518 done,6213 she1931 nor her daughters,1323 as834 thou hast done,6213 thou859 and thy daughters.1323

49  Behold,2009 this2088 was1961 the iniquity5771 of thy sister269 Sodom,5467 pride,1347 fullness7653 of bread,3899 and abundance7962 of idleness8252 was1961 in her and in her daughters,1323 neither3808 did she strengthen2388 the hand3027 of the poor6041 and needy.34

50  And they were haughty,1361 and committed6213 abomination8441 before6440 me: therefore I took them away5493 853 as834 I saw7200 good.

51  Neither3808 hath Samaria8111 committed2398 half2677 of thy sins;2403 but thou hast multiplied7235 853 thine abominations8441 more than4480 they, and hast justified6663 853 thy sisters269 in all3605 thine abominations8441 which834 thou hast done.6213

52  Thou859 also,1571 which834 hast judged6419 thy sisters,269 bear5375 thine own shame3639 for thy sins2403 that834 thou hast committed more abominable8581 than4480 they: they are more righteous6663 than4480 thou: yea, be thou confounded954 859 also,1571 and bear5375 thy shame,3639 in that thou hast justified6663 thy sisters.269

53  When I shall bring again7725 853 their captivity,7622 853 the captivity7622 of Sodom5467 and her daughters,1323 and the captivity7622 of Samaria8111 and her daughters,1323 then will I bring again the captivity7622 of thy captives7622 in the midst8432 of them:

54  That4616 thou mayest bear5375 thine own shame,3639 and mayest be confounded3637 in all4480 3605 that834 thou hast done,6213 in that thou art a comfort5162 unto them.

55  When thy sisters,269 Sodom5467 and her daughters,1323 shall return7725 to their former estate,6927 and Samaria8111 and her daughters1323 shall return7725 to their former estate,6927 then thou859 and thy daughters1323 shall return7725 to your former estate.6927

56  For thy sister269 Sodom5467 was1961 not3808 mentioned8052 by thy mouth6310 in the day3117 of thy pride,1347

57  Before2962 thy wickedness7451 was discovered,1540 as at3644 the time6256 of thy reproach2781 of the daughters1323 of Syria,758 and all3605 that are round about5439 her, the daughters1323 of the Philistines,6430 which despise7590 thee round about.4480 5439

58  Thou859 hast borne5375 853 thy lewdness2154 and thine abominations,8441 saith5002 the LORD.3068

59  For3588 thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 I will even deal6213 with854 thee as834 thou hast done,6213 which834 hast despised959 the oath423 in breaking6565 the covenant.1285

60  Nevertheless I589 will remember2142 853 my covenant1285 with854 thee with thee in the days3117 of thy youth,5271 and I will establish6965 unto thee an everlasting5769 covenant.1285

61  Then thou shalt remember2142 853 thy ways,1870 and be ashamed,3637 when thou shalt receive3947 853 thy sisters,269 thine elder1419 and thy younger:6996 and I will give5414 them unto thee for daughters,1323 but not3808 by thy covenant.4480 1285

62  And I589 will establish6965 853 my covenant1285 with854 thee; and thou shalt know3045 that3588 I589 am the LORD:3068

63  That4616 thou mayest remember,2142 and be confounded,954 and never3808 open6610 thy mouth6310 any more5750 because4480 6440 of thy shame,3639 when I am pacified3722 toward thee for all3605 that834 thou hast done,6213 saith5002 the Lord136 GOD.3069


Ezekiel 17


1  And the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 unto413 me, saying,559

2  Son1121 of man,120 put forth2330 a riddle,2420 and speak4911 a parable4912 unto413 the house1004 of Israel;3478

3  And say,559 Thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 A great1419 eagle5404 with great1419 wings,3671 long-winged,750 83 full4392 of feathers,5133 which834 had divers colors,7553 came935 unto413 Lebanon,3844 and took3947 853 the highest branch6788 of the cedar:730

4  He cropped off6998 853 the top7218 of his young twigs,3242 and carried935 it into413 a land776 of traffic;3667 he set7760 it in a city5892 of merchants.7402

5  He took3947 also of the seed4480 2233 of the land,776 and planted5414 it in a fruitful2233 field;7704 he placed3947 it by5921 great7227 waters,4325 and set7760 it as a willow tree.6851

6  And it grew,6779 and became1961 a spreading5628 vine1612 of low8217 stature,6967 whose branches1808 turned6437 toward413 him, and the roots8328 thereof were1961 under8478 him: so it became1961 a vine,1612 and brought forth6213 branches,905 and shot forth7971 sprigs.6288

7  There was1961 also another259 great1419 eagle5404 with great1419 wings3671 and many7227 feathers:5133 and, behold,2009 this2063 vine1612 did bend3719 her roots8328 toward him, and shot forth7971 her branches1808 toward5921 him, that he might water8248 it by the furrows4480 6170 of her plantation.4302

8  It1931 was planted8362 in413 a good2896 soil7704 by413 great7227 waters,4325 that it might bring forth6213 branches,6057 and that it might bear5375 fruit,6529 that it might be1961 a goodly155 vine.1612

9  Say559 thou, Thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 Shall it prosper?6743 shall he not3808 pull up5423 853 the roots8328 thereof, and cut off7082 the fruit6529 thereof, that it wither?3001 it shall wither3001 in all3605 the leaves2965 of her spring,6780 even without3808 great1419 power2220 or many7227 people5971 to pluck it up5375 853 by the roots4480 8328 thereof.

10  Yea, behold,2009 being planted,8362 shall it prosper?6743 shall it not3808 utterly wither,3001 3001 when the east6921 wind7307 toucheth5060 it? it shall wither3001 in5921 the furrows6170 where it grew.6780

11  Moreover the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 unto413 me, saying,559

12  Say559 now4994 to the rebellious4805 house,1004 Know3045 ye not3808 what4100 these428 things mean? tell559 them, Behold,2009 the king4428 of Babylon894 is come935 to Jerusalem,3389 and hath taken3947 853 the king4428 thereof, and the princes8269 thereof, and led935 them with413 him to Babylon;894

13  And hath taken3947 of the king's4410 seed,4480 2233 and made3772 a covenant1285 with854 him, and hath taken935 an oath423 of him: he hath also taken3947 the mighty352 of the land:776

14  That the kingdom4467 might be1961 base,8217 that it might not1115 lift itself up,5375 but that by keeping8104 853 of his covenant1285 it might stand.5975

15  But he rebelled4775 against him in sending7971 his ambassadors4397 into Egypt,4714 that they might give5414 him horses5483 and much7227 people.5971 Shall he prosper?6743 shall he escape4422 that doeth6213 such428 things? or shall he break6565 the covenant,1285 and be delivered?4422

16  As I589 live,2416 saith5002 the Lord136 GOD,3069 surely518 3808 in the place4725 where the king4428 dwelleth that made him king,4427 853 whose834 853 oath423 he despised,959 and whose834 853 covenant1285 he broke,6565 even with854 him in the midst8432 of Babylon894 he shall die.4191

17  Neither3808 shall Pharaoh6547 with his mighty1419 army2428 and great7227 company6951 make6213 for him in the war,4421 by casting up8210 mounts,5550 and building1129 forts,1785 to cut off3772 many7227 persons:5315

18  Seeing he despised959 the oath423 by breaking6565 the covenant,1285 when, lo,2009 he had given5414 his hand,3027 and hath done6213 all3605 these428 things, he shall not3808 escape.4422

19  Therefore3651 thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 As I589 live,2416 surely518 3808 mine oath423 that834 he hath despised,959 and my covenant1285 that834 he hath broken,6565 even it will I recompense5414 upon his own head.7218

20  And I will spread6566 my net7568 upon5921 him, and he shall be taken8610 in my snare,4686 and I will bring935 him to Babylon,894 and will plead8199 with854 him there8033 for his trespass4603 that834 he hath trespassed4603 against me.

21  And all3605 his fugitives4015 with all3605 his bands102 shall fall5307 by the sword,2719 and they that remain7604 shall be scattered6566 toward all3605 winds:7307 and ye shall know3045 that3588 I589 the LORD3068 have spoken1696 it.

22  Thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 I589 will also take3947 of the highest branch4480 6788 of the high7311 cedar,730 and will set5414 it; I will crop off6998 from the top4480 7218 of his young twigs3127 a tender one,7390 and will plant8362 it upon5921 a high1364 mountain2022 and eminent:8524

23  In the mountain2022 of the height4791 of Israel3478 will I plant8362 it: and it shall bring forth5375 boughs,6057 and bear6213 fruit,6529 and be1961 a goodly117 cedar:730 and under8478 it shall dwell7931 all3605 fowl6833 of every3605 wing;3671 in the shadow6738 of the branches1808 thereof shall they dwell.7931

24  And all3605 the trees6086 of the field7704 shall know3045 that3588 I589 the LORD3068 have brought down8213 the high1364 tree,6086 have exalted1361 the low8217 tree,6086 have dried up3001 the green3892 tree,6086 and have made the dry3002 tree6086 to flourish:6524 I589 the LORD3068 have spoken1696 and have done6213 it.


Ezekiel 18


1  The word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 unto413 me again, saying,559

2  What4100 mean ye, that ye859 use4911 this2088 853 proverb4912 concerning5921 the land127 of Israel,3478 saying,559 The fathers1 have eaten398 sour grapes,1155 and the children's1121 teeth8127 are set on edge?6949

3  As I589 live,2416 saith5002 the Lord136 GOD,3069 ye shall not518 have1961 occasion any more5750 to use4911 this2088 proverb4912 in Israel.3478

4  Behold,2005 all3605 souls5315 are mine; as the soul5315 of the father,1 so also the soul5315 of the son1121 is mine: the soul5315 that sinneth,2398 it1931 shall die.4191

5  But if3588 a man376 be1961 just,6662 and do6213 that which is lawful4941 and right,6666

6  And hath not3808 eaten398 upon413 the mountains,2022 neither3808 hath lifted up5375 his eyes5869 to413 the idols1544 of the house1004 of Israel,3478 neither3808 hath defiled2930 his neighbor's7453 wife,802 neither3808 hath come near7126 to413 a menstruous5079 woman,802

7  And hath not3808 oppressed3238 any,376 but hath restored7725 to the debtor2326 his pledge,2258 hath spoiled1497 none3808 by violence,1500 hath given5414 his bread3899 to the hungry,7457 and hath covered3680 the naked5903 with a garment;899

8  He that hath not3808 given forth5414 upon usury,5392 neither3808 hath taken3947 any increase,8636 that hath withdrawn7725 his hand3027 from iniquity,4480 5766 hath executed6213 true571 judgment4941 between996 man376 and man,376

9  Hath walked1980 in my statutes,2708 and hath kept8104 my judgments,4941 to deal6213 truly;571 he1931 is just,6662 he shall surely live,2421 2421 saith5002 the Lord136 GOD.3069

10  If he beget3205 a son1121 that is a robber,6530 a shedder8210 of blood,1818 and that doeth6213 the like251 to any one4480 259 of these4480 428 things,

11  And that1931 doeth6213 not3808 853 any3605 of those428 duties, but3588 even1571 hath eaten398 upon413 the mountains,2022 and defiled2930 his neighbor's7453 wife,802

12  Hath oppressed3238 the poor6041 and needy,34 hath spoiled1497 by violence,1500 hath not3808 restored7725 the pledge,2258 and hath lifted up5375 his eyes5869 to413 the idols,1544 hath committed6213 abomination,8441

13  Hath given forth5414 upon usury,5392 and hath taken3947 increase:8636 shall he then live?2421 he shall not3808 live:2421 he hath done6213 853 all3605 these428 abominations;8441 he shall surely die;4191 4191 his blood1818 shall be1961 upon him.

14  Now, lo,2009 if he beget3205 a son,1121 that seeth7200 853 all3605 his father's1 sins2403 which834 he hath done,6213 and considereth,7200 and doeth6213 not3808 such like,

15  That hath not3808 eaten398 upon5921 the mountains,2022 neither3808 hath lifted up5375 his eyes5869 to413 the idols1544 of the house1004 of Israel,3478 hath not3808 defiled2930 his neighbor's7453 853 wife,802

16  Neither3808 hath oppressed3238 any,376 hath not3808 withheld2254 the pledge,2258 neither3808 hath spoiled1497 by violence,1500 but hath given5414 his bread3899 to the hungry,7457 and hath covered3680 the naked5903 with a garment,899

17  That hath taken off7725 his hand3027 from the poor,4480 6041 that hath not3808 received3947 usury5392 nor increase,8636 hath executed6213 my judgments,4941 hath walked1980 in my statutes;2708 he1931 shall not3808 die4191 for the iniquity5771 of his father,1 he shall surely live.2421 2421

18  As for his father,1 because3588 he cruelly oppressed,6231 6233 spoiled1497 his brother251 by violence,1499 and did6213 that which834 is not3808 good2896 among8432 his people,5971 lo,2009 even he shall die4191 in his iniquity.5771

19  Yet say559 ye, Why?4069 doth not3808 the son1121 bear5375 the iniquity5771 of the father?1 When the son1121 hath done6213 that which is lawful4941 and right,6666 and hath kept8104 853 all3605 my statutes,2708 and hath done6213 them, he shall surely live.2421 2421

20  The soul5315 that sinneth,2398 it1931 shall die.4191 The son1121 shall not3808 bear5375 the iniquity5771 of the father,1 neither3808 shall the father1 bear5375 the iniquity5771 of the son:1121 the righteousness6666 of the righteous6662 shall be1961 upon5921 him, and the wickedness7564 of the wicked7563 shall be1961 upon5921 him.

21  But if3588 the wicked7563 will turn7725 from all4480 3605 his sins2403 that834 he hath committed,6213 and keep8104 853 all3605 my statutes,2708 and do6213 that which is lawful4941 and right,6666 he shall surely live,2421 2421 he shall not3808 die.4191

22  All3605 his transgressions6588 that834 he hath committed,6213 they shall not3808 be mentioned2142 unto him: in his righteousness6666 that834 he hath done6213 he shall live.2421

23  Have I any pleasure at all2654 2654 that the wicked7563 should die?4194 saith5002 the Lord136 GOD:3069 and not3808 that he should return7725 from his ways,4480 1870 and live?2421

24  But when the righteous6662 turneth away7725 from his righteousness,4480 6666 and committeth6213 iniquity,5766 and doeth6213 according to all3605 the abominations8441 that834 the wicked7563 man doeth,6213 shall he live?2421 All3605 his righteousness6666 that834 he hath done6213 shall not3808 be mentioned:2142 in his trespass4604 that834 he hath trespassed,4603 and in his sin2403 that834 he hath sinned,2398 in them shall he die.4191

25  Yet ye say,559 The way1870 of the Lord136 is not equal.8505 3808 Hear8085 now,4994 O house1004 of Israel;3478 Is not3808 my way1870 equal?8505 are not3808 your ways1870 unequal?3808 8505

26  When a righteous6662 man turneth away7725 from his righteousness,4480 6666 and committeth6213 iniquity,5766 and dieth4191 in5921 them; for his iniquity5766 that834 he hath done6213 shall he die.4191

27  Again, when the wicked7563 man turneth away7725 from his wickedness4480 7564 that834 he hath committed,6213 and doeth6213 that which is lawful4941 and right,6666 he1931 shall save his soul alive.2421 853 5315

28  Because he considereth,7200 and turneth away7725 from all4480 3605 his transgressions6588 that834 he hath committed,6213 he shall surely live,2421 2421 he shall not3808 die.4191

29  Yet saith559 the house1004 of Israel,3478 The way1870 of the Lord136 is not equal.8505 3808 O house1004 of Israel,3478 are not3808 my ways1870 equal?8505 are not3808 your ways1870 unequal?3808 8505

30  Therefore3651 I will judge8199 you, O house1004 of Israel,3478 every one376 according to his ways,1870 saith5002 the Lord136 GOD.3069 Repent,7725 and turn7725 yourselves from all4480 3605 your transgressions;6588 so iniquity5771 shall not3808 be1961 your ruin.4383

31  Cast away7993 from4480 5921 you 853 all3605 your transgressions,6588 whereby834 ye have transgressed;6586 and make6213 you a new2319 heart3820 and a new2319 spirit:7307 for why4100 will ye die,4191 O house1004 of Israel?3478

32  For3588 I have no pleasure2654 3808 in the death4194 of him that dieth,4191 saith5002 the Lord136 GOD:3069 wherefore turn7725 yourselves, and live2421 ye.


Ezekiel 19


1  Moreover take thou up859 5375 a lamentation7015 for413 the princes5387 of Israel,3478

2  And say,559 What4100 is thy mother?517 A lioness:3833 she lay down7257 among996 lions,738 she nourished7235 her whelps1482 among8432 young lions.3715

3  And she brought up5927 one259 of her whelps:4480 1482 it became1961 a young lion,3715 and it learned3925 to catch2963 the prey;2964 it devoured398 men.120

4  The nations1471 also heard8085 of413 him; he was taken8610 in their pit,7845 and they brought935 him with chains2397 unto413 the land776 of Egypt.4714

5  Now when she saw7200 that3588 she had waited,3176 and her hope8615 was lost,6 then she took3947 another259 of her whelps,4480 1482 and made7760 him a young lion.3715

6  And he went up and down1980 among8432 the lions,738 he became1961 a young lion,3715 and learned3925 to catch2963 the prey,2964 and devoured398 men.120

7  And he knew3045 their desolate palaces,759 and he laid waste2717 their cities;5892 and the land776 was desolate,3456 and the fullness4393 thereof, by the noise4480 6963 of his roaring.7581

8  Then the nations1471 set5414 against5921 him on every side5439 from the provinces,4480 4082 and spread6566 their net7568 over5921 him: he was taken8610 in their pit.7845

9  And they put5414 him in ward5474 in chains,2397 and brought935 him to413 the king4428 of Babylon:894 they brought935 him into holds,4679 that4616 his voice6963 should no3808 more5750 be heard8085 upon413 the mountains2022 of Israel.3478

10  Thy mother517 is like a vine1612 in thy blood,1818 planted8362 by5921 the waters:4325 she was1961 fruitful6509 and full of branches6058 by reason of many7227 waters.4480 4325

11  And she had1961 strong5797 rods4294 for413 the scepters7626 of them that bore rule,4910 and her stature6967 was exalted1361 among5921 996 the thick branches,5688 and she appeared7200 in her height1363 with the multitude7230 of her branches.1808

12  But she was plucked up5428 in fury,2534 she was cast down7993 to the ground,776 and the east6921 wind7307 dried up3001 her fruit:6529 her strong5797 rods4294 were broken6561 and withered;3001 the fire784 consumed398 them.

13  And now6258 she is planted8362 in the wilderness,4057 in a dry6723 and thirsty6772 ground.776

14  And fire784 is gone out3318 of a rod4480 4294 of her branches,905 which hath devoured398 her fruit,6529 so that she hath1961 no3808 strong5797 rod4294 to be a scepter7626 to rule.4910 This1931 is a lamentation,7015 and shall be1961 for a lamentation.7015


Ezekiel 20


1  And it came to pass1961 in the seventh7637 year,8141 in the fifth2549 month, the tenth6218 day of the month,2320 that certain376 of the elders4480 2205 of Israel3478 came935 to inquire1875 853 of the LORD,3068 and sat3427 before6440 me.

2  Then came1961 the word1697 of the LORD3068 unto413 me, saying,559

3  Son1121 of man,120 speak1696 853 unto the elders2205 of Israel,3478 and say559 unto413 them, Thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 Are ye859 come935 to inquire1875 of me? As I589 live,2416 saith5002 the Lord136 GOD,3069 I will not518 be inquired1875 of by you.

4  Wilt thou judge8199 them, son1121 of man,120 wilt thou judge8199 them? cause them to know3045 853 the abominations8441 of their fathers:1

5  And say559 unto413 them, Thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 In the day3117 when I chose977 Israel,3478 and lifted up5375 mine hand3027 unto the seed2233 of the house1004 of Jacob,3290 and made myself known3045 unto them in the land776 of Egypt,4714 when I lifted up5375 mine hand3027 unto them, saying,559 I589 am the LORD3068 your God;430

6  In the day3117 that I lifted up5375 mine hand3027 unto them, to bring them forth3318 of the land4480 776 of Egypt4714 into413 a land776 that834 I had espied8446 for them, flowing2100 with milk2461 and honey,1706 which1931 is the glory6643 of all3605 lands:776

7  Then said559 I unto413 them, Cast ye away7993 every man376 the abominations8251 of his eyes,5869 and defile not yourselves2930 408 with the idols1544 of Egypt:4714 I589 am the LORD3068 your God.430

8  But they rebelled4784 against me, and would14 not3808 hearken8085 unto413 me: they did not3808 every man376 cast away7993 853 the abominations8251 of their eyes,5869 neither3808 did they forsake5800 the idols1544 of Egypt:4714 then I said,559 I will pour out8210 my fury2534 upon5921 them, to accomplish3615 my anger639 against them in the midst8432 of the land776 of Egypt.4714

9  But I wrought6213 for my name's sake,4616 8034 that it should not1115 be polluted2490 before5869 the heathen,1471 among8432 whom834 they1992 were, in whose834 sight5869 I made myself known3045 unto413 them, in bringing them forth3318 out of the land4480 776 of Egypt.4714

10  Wherefore I caused them to go3318 out of the land4480 776 of Egypt,4714 and brought935 them into413 the wilderness.4057

11  And I gave5414 them 853 my statutes,2708 and showed3045 them my judgments,4941 which834 if a man120 do,6213 853 he shall even live2421 in them.

12  Moreover also1571 I gave5414 them 853 my sabbaths,7676 to be1961 a sign226 between996 me and them, that they might know3045 that3588 I589 am the LORD3068 that sanctify6942 them.

13  But the house1004 of Israel3478 rebelled4784 against me in the wilderness:4057 they walked1980 not3808 in my statutes,2708 and they despised3988 my judgments,4941 which834 if a man120 do,6213 853 he shall even live2421 in them; and my sabbaths7676 they greatly3966 polluted:2490 then I said,559 I would pour out8210 my fury2534 upon5921 them in the wilderness,4057 to consume3615 them.

14  But I wrought6213 for my name's sake,4616 8034 that it should not1115 be polluted2490 before5869 the heathen,1471 in whose834 sight5869 I brought them out.3318

15  Yet also1571 I589 lifted up5375 my hand3027 unto them in the wilderness,4057 that I would not1115 bring935 them into413 the land776 which834 I had given5414 them, flowing2100 with milk2461 and honey,1706 which1931 is the glory6643 of all3605 lands;776

16  Because3282 they despised3988 my judgments,4941 and walked1980 not3808 in my statutes,2708 but polluted2490 my sabbaths:7676 for3588 their heart3820 went1980 after310 their idols.1544

17  Nevertheless mine eye5869 spared2347 5921 them from destroying4480 7843 them, neither3808 did I make6213 an end3617 of them in the wilderness.4057

18  But I said559 unto413 their children1121 in the wilderness,4057 Walk1980 ye not408 in the statutes2706 of your fathers,1 neither408 observe8104 their judgments,4941 nor408 defile yourselves2930 with their idols:1544

19  I589 am the LORD3068 your God;430 walk1980 in my statutes,2708 and keep8104 my judgments,4941 and do6213 them;

20  And hallow6942 my sabbaths;7676 and they shall be1961 a sign226 between996 me and you, that ye may know3045 that3588 I589 am the LORD3068 your God.430

21  Notwithstanding the children1121 rebelled4784 against me: they walked1980 not3808 in my statutes,2708 neither3808 kept8104 my judgments4941 to do6213 them, which834 if a man120 do,6213 853 he shall even live2421 in them; they polluted2490 853 my sabbaths:7676 then I said,559 I would pour out8210 my fury2534 upon5921 them, to accomplish3615 my anger639 against them in the wilderness.4057

22  Nevertheless I withdrew7725 853 mine hand,3027 and wrought6213 for my name's sake,4616 8034 that it should not1115 be polluted2490 in the sight5869 of the heathen,1471 in whose834 sight5869 I brought them forth.3318 853

23  I589 lifted up5375 853 mine hand3027 unto them also1571 in the wilderness,4057 that I would scatter6327 them among the heathen,1471 and disperse2219 them through the countries;776

24  Because3282 they had not3808 executed6213 my judgments,4941 but had despised3988 my statutes,2708 and had polluted2490 my sabbaths,7676 and their eyes5869 were1961 after310 their fathers'1 idols.1544

25  Wherefore I589 gave5414 them also1571 statutes2706 that were not3808 good,2896 and judgments4941 whereby they should not3808 live;2421

26  And I polluted2930 them in their own gifts,4979 in that they caused to pass through5674 the fire all3605 that openeth6363 the womb,7356 that4616 I might make them desolate,8074 to the end4616 that834 they might know3045 that834 I589 am the LORD.3068

27  Therefore,3651 son1121 of man,120 speak1696 unto413 the house1004 of Israel,3478 and say559 unto413 them, Thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 Yet5750 in this2063 your fathers1 have blasphemed1442 me, in that they have committed4603 a trespass4604 against me.

28  For when I had brought935 them into413 the land,776 for the which834 I lifted up5375 853 mine hand3027 to give5414 it to them, then they saw7200 every3605 high7311 hill,1389 and all3605 the thick5687 trees,6086 and they offered2076 there8033 853 their sacrifices,2077 and there8033 they presented5414 the provocation3708 of their offering:7133 there8033 also they made7760 their sweet5207 savor,7381 and poured out5258 there8033 853 their drink offerings.5262

29  Then I said559 unto413 them, What4100 is the high place1116 whereunto834 8033 ye859 go?935 And the name8034 thereof is called7121 Bamah1117 unto5704 this2088 day.3117

30  Wherefore3651 say559 unto413 the house1004 of Israel,3478 Thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 Are ye859 polluted2930 after the manner1870 of your fathers?1 and commit ye whoredom2181 859 after310 their abominations?8251

31  For when ye offer5375 your gifts,4979 when ye make your sons1121 to pass5674 through the fire,784 ye859 pollute yourselves2930 with all3605 your idols,1544 even unto5704 this day:3117 and shall I589 be inquired of1875 by you, O house1004 of Israel?3478 As I589 live,2416 saith5002 the Lord136 GOD,3069 I will not518 be inquired of1875 by you.

32  And that which cometh5927 into5921 your mind7307 shall not3808 be at all,1961 1961 that834 ye859 say,559 We will be1961 as the heathen,1471 as the families4940 of the countries,776 to serve8334 wood6086 and stone.68

33  As I589 live,2416 saith5002 the Lord136 GOD,3069 surely518 3808 with a mighty2389 hand,3027 and with a stretched out5186 arm,2220 and with fury2534 poured out,8210 will I rule4427 over5921 you:

34  And I will bring you out3318 853 from4480 the people,5971 and will gather6908 you out of4480 the countries776 wherein834 ye are scattered,6327 with a mighty2389 hand,3027 and with a stretched out5186 arm,2220 and with fury2534 poured out.8210

35  And I will bring935 you into413 the wilderness4057 of the people,5971 and there8033 will I plead8199 with854 you face6440 to413 face.6440

36  Like as834 I pleaded8199 with854 your fathers1 in the wilderness4057 of the land776 of Egypt,4714 so3651 will I plead8199 with854 you, saith5002 the Lord136 GOD.3069

37  And I will cause you to pass5674 under8478 the rod,7626 and I will bring935 you into the bond4562 of the covenant:1285

38  And I will purge out1305 from4480 among you the rebels,4775 and them that transgress6586 against me: I will bring them forth3318 853 out of the country4480 776 where they sojourn,4033 and they shall not3808 enter935 into413 the land127 of Israel:3478 and ye shall know3045 that3588 I589 am the LORD.3068

39  As for you,859 O house1004 of Israel,3478 thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 Go1980 ye, serve5647 ye every one376 his idols,1544 and hereafter310 also, if518 ye will not369 hearken8085 unto413 me: but pollute2490 ye my holy6944 name8034 no3808 more5750 with your gifts,4979 and with your idols.1544

40  For3588 in mine holy6944 mountain,2022 in the mountain2022 of the height4791 of Israel,3478 saith5002 the Lord136 GOD,3069 there8033 shall all3605 the house1004 of Israel,3478 all3605 of them in the land,776 serve5647 me: there8033 will I accept7521 them, and there8033 will I require1875 853 your offerings,8641 and the firstfruits7225 of your oblations,4864 with all3605 your holy things.6944

41  I will accept7521 you with your sweet5207 savor,7381 when I bring you out3318 853 from4480 the people,5971 and gather6908 you out of4480 the countries776 wherein834 ye have been scattered;6327 and I will be sanctified6942 in you before5869 the heathen.1471

42  And ye shall know3045 that3588 I589 am the LORD,3068 when I shall bring935 you into413 the land127 of Israel,3478 into413 the country776 for the which834 I lifted up5375 853 mine hand3027 to give5414 it to your fathers.1

43  And there8033 shall ye remember2142 853 your ways,1870 and all3605 your doings,5949 wherein834 ye have been defiled;2930 and ye shall loathe yourselves6962 in your own sight6440 for all3605 your evils7451 that834 ye have committed.6213

44  And ye shall know3045 that3588 I589 am the LORD,3068 when I have wrought6213 with854 you for my name's sake,4616 8034 not3808 according to your wicked7451 ways,1870 nor according to your corrupt7843 doings,5949 O ye house1004 of Israel,3478 saith5002 the Lord136 GOD.3069

45  Moreover the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 unto413 me, saying,559

46  Son1121 of man,120 set7760 thy face6440 toward1870 the south,8486 and drop5197 thy word toward413 the south,1864 and prophesy5012 against413 the forest3293 of the south5045 field;7704

47  And say559 to the forest3293 of the south,5045 Hear8085 the word1697 of the LORD;3068 Thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 Behold,2009 I will kindle3341 a fire784 in thee, and it shall devour398 every3605 green3892 tree6086 in thee, and every3605 dry3002 tree:6086 the flaming3852 flame7957 shall not3808 be quenched,3518 and all3605 faces6440 from the south4480 5045 to the north6828 shall be burned6866 therein.

48  And all3605 flesh1320 shall see7200 that3588 I589 the LORD3068 have kindled1197 it: it shall not3808 be quenched.3518

49  Then said559 I, Ah162 Lord136 GOD!3069 they1992 say559 of me, Doth he1931 not3808 speak4911 parables?4912


Ezekiel 21


1  And the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 unto413 me, saying,559

2  Son1121 of man,120 set7760 thy face6440 toward413 Jerusalem,3389 and drop5197 thy word toward413 the holy places,4720 and prophesy5012 against413 the land127 of Israel,3478

3  And say559 to the land127 of Israel,3478 Thus3541 saith559 the LORD;3068 Behold,2009 I am against413 thee, and will draw forth3318 my sword2719 out of his sheath,4480 8593 and will cut off3772 from4480 thee the righteous6662 and the wicked.7563

4  Seeing then3282 that834 I will cut off3772 from4480 thee the righteous6662 and the wicked,7563 therefore3651 shall my sword2719 go forth3318 out of his sheath4480 8593 against413 all3605 flesh1320 from the south4480 5045 to the north:6828

5  That all3605 flesh1320 may know3045 that3588 I589 the LORD3068 have drawn forth3318 my sword2719 out of his sheath:4480 8593 it shall not3808 return7725 any more.5750

6  Sigh584 therefore, thou859 son1121 of man,120 with the breaking7670 of thy loins;4975 and with bitterness4814 sigh584 before their eyes.5869

7  And it shall be,1961 when3588 they say559 unto413 thee, Wherefore5921 4100 sighest584 thou?859 that thou shalt answer,559 For413 the tidings;8052 because3588 it cometh:935 and every3605 heart3820 shall melt,4549 and all3605 hands3027 shall be feeble,7503 and every3605 spirit7307 shall faint,3543 and all3605 knees1290 shall be weak1980 as water:4325 behold,2009 it cometh,935 and shall be brought to pass,1961 saith5002 the Lord136 GOD.3069

8  Again the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 unto413 me, saying,559

9  Son1121 of man,120 prophesy,5012 and say,559 Thus3541 saith559 the LORD;136 Say,559 A sword,2719 a sword2719 is sharpened,2300 and also1571 furbished:4803

10  It is sharpened2300 to4616 make a sore slaughter;2873 2874 it is furbished4803 that4616 it may glitter:1961 1300 should we then176 make mirth?7797 it contemneth3988 the rod7626 of my son,1121 as every3605 tree.6086

11  And he hath given5414 it to be furbished,4803 that it may be handled:8610 3709 this1931 sword2719 is sharpened,2300 and it1931 is furbished,4803 to give5414 it into the hand3027 of the slayer.2026

12  Cry2199 and howl,3213 son1121 of man:120 for3588 it1931 shall be1961 upon my people,5971 it1931 shall be upon all3605 the princes5387 of Israel:3478 terrors4048 by reason of413 the sword2719 shall be1961 upon854 my people:5971 smite5606 therefore3651 upon413 thy thigh.3409

13  Because3588 it is a trial,974 and what4100 if518 the sword contemn3988 even1571 the rod?7626 it shall be1961 no3808 more, saith5002 the Lord136 GOD.3069

14  Thou859 therefore, son1121 of man,120 prophesy,5012 and smite thine hands together,5221 3709 413 3709 and let the sword2719 be doubled3717 the third time,7992 the sword2719 of the slain:2491 it1931 is the sword2719 of the great1419 men that are slain,2491 which entereth into their privy chambers.2314

15  I have set5414 the point19 of the sword2719 against5921 all3605 their gates,8179 that4616 their heart3820 may faint,4127 and their ruins4383 be multiplied:7235 ah!253 it is made bright,6213 1300 it is wrapped up4593 for the slaughter.2874

16  Go thee one way or other,258 either on the right hand,3231 or on the left,8041 whithersoever575 thy face6440 is set.3259

17  I589 will also1571 smite5221 mine hands together,3709 413 3709 and I will cause my fury2534 to rest:5117 I589 the LORD3068 have said1696 it.

18  The word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 unto413 me again, saying,559

19  Also, thou859 son1121 of man,120 appoint7760 thee two8147 ways,1870 that the sword2719 of the king4428 of Babylon894 may come:935 both twain8147 shall come forth3318 out of one land:4480 776 259 and choose1254 thou a place,3027 choose1254 it at the head7218 of the way1870 to the city.5892

20  Appoint7760 a way,1870 that the sword2719 may come935 to854 Rabbath7237 of the Ammonites,1121 5983 and to854 Judah3063 in Jerusalem3389 the defensed.1219

21  For3588 the king4428 of Babylon894 stood5975 at413 the parting517 of the way,1870 at the head7218 of the two8147 ways,1870 to use7080 divination:7081 he made his arrows bright,7043 2671 he consulted7592 with images,8655 he looked7200 in the liver.3516

22  At his right hand3225 was1961 the divination7081 for Jerusalem,3389 to appoint7760 captains,3733 to open6605 the mouth6310 in the slaughter,7524 to lift up7311 the voice6963 with shouting,8643 to appoint7760 battering rams3733 against5921 the gates,8179 to cast8210 a mount,5550 and to build1129 a fort.1785

23  And it shall be1961 unto them as a false7723
